Contemplative Silence


So what would be the more frustrating?
Misplacement of Pay TV smart remote,
unannounced power outages on a fine
winter’s Sunday or solar panels bathed
in sunlight but not generating (so the
control board opines – no grid to send
its current to); consolation – it didn’t
happen during the previous two weeks

Visitors from Sweden were here then,
left us yesterday, but nothing phased
them unduly; a magical interlude with
grandkids running free, creating joyous
mayhem – today we share a legacy of
implicitly, contemplative silence
