(I am participating in the March Slice of Life challenge via the Two Writing Teachers site.  Slice of Life is the idea of noticing the small moments. I have been a participant for many years and each year, I wonder if I will have the energy to write every day.

Day Three

Figures prone, as if
exhibits in a museum,
a gathering of stories
and words in hand

with not a breath of voice;

might reveal cacophony,
a multitude

but here, in the classroom,
through this window,
it’s a comfortable quiet,
a sustained silence

Peace (books have it),
Kevin
