I don't think we'll ever find that kind of tranquility again...except of course, reading FW entries in silence. This is a good reminder of the noise we're surrounded by and don't even notice anymore.

A truly enjoyable poem, nice flow and easy rhyme--and I especially like the last verse. I never fail to find God in quiet, peace-filled nature.

Oh, bravo! Lines like "I want to tip on quiet toe" are pure poetry. (my humble non-official opinion (: ) The meter sounds perfect, and rhyming vulture and culture without forcing it? priceless.

Oh, bravo! Lines like "I want to tip on quiet toe" are pure poetry. (my humble. non-official opinion (: ) The meter sounds perfect, and rhyming vulture and culture without forcing it? Priceless. The message seemed meant for me, and the last line really drives it home. Excellent work.
Loved it! Excellent poetry, with many top notch word choices. Plus a neat message.

I want to tip on quiet toe
To smell and feel the place Iíll go
I agree, this is great. I do this each morning, but always despair as the day wears on that I can't stay there.
This is fantastic. I could only hope to be so talented. Well-done.
Congratulations on placing in EC with this lovely poem.

So many good lines - which to pick?

"I choose to pause and shift my gears
To change my thoughts and save my ears"

Finding a quiet place is always an act of will. Great poem.

Really hard for teenagers...the weird thing is that lately it seems it's in the sound of our iPods that we find silence and peace!
Great poem, and had this peaceful "ssh" touch to it.
