I like the quiet

I like the quiet.
Watching the mute
grass
blow in the silent
breeze;
Seeing the soft, pink
lights
reflect off the stone wall;
Relaxing my body,
letting my day
go,
I like the quiet.

cathartic.

I came to your site by way of Philosophical Poetry and I am glad that I did. I really like this poem very much.

Me too.

Sometimes, a beer is nice, too.

I like your description of "mute grass." That's a nice anthropomorphic touch.

I also love the blissful quiet. Upon reading this I instantly feel calm. "Mute grass" is an excellent phrase.

'letting my day
go,'

That's good. Made me smile.
