Comfortable Silence


By Lekha Murali

Where human bonds run so deep,
To have withstood the test of attrition – time and time again;

That discord and harmony could co-exist peacefully,
When substantive conversations dissolve pretense and insecurity,
That neither has the need to coddle the other emotionally
Where one is at ease with the other as with oneself;

Is when the uttered word becomes redundant,
And shared silence becomes comfortable.

      1. Hi Lekha, no problems. It’s nice to hear from you anyway. I’ve been ‘off radar’ for a few days as I’ve been unwell. Best wishes Norma
