A Quiet Place

A poem about searching for a quiet place to call your own, to read, to write, or sometimes just to think.

Areas to find
And zones to seek
For a quiet place and peace of mind
Should I endeavour
Forever in search
Of a silent, lonely perch
To read, to think
Away from everything and everyone
To sit and ponder amid the setting sun
Away from this, the to and fro of daily life
A quiet place, yet perhaps
A vibrant place?
A bit of space
All my own
My little comfort kingdom
My solitary throne
This I hold among the things
I dearly wish
A quiet place
To brood in bliss

Ricky Gillies is primarily a poet and occasional short story writer with a fondness for melancholy and alliteration.
