I don’t know why but I tend to relate stillness with peace. I could picture an individual in the middle of the lonely road at night. And I’m taken aback to the times I have stayed in the middle of the road while looking at the moon and with my hands in my empty pockets (my parents to my side, we would walk a street at night in order to get home back from visiting grandparents in a small town) It gave me peace of mind. I hope you are well. As always thank you for sharing with us.
There is something quite beautiful about imagery of standing or sitting in a quiet lonely place be it road or countryside. It has a natural beat and presence about it. Although the idea of having pockets full of tears is sad the magical things that only you know about lifts the piece and adds home and mystique. As a reader I am tantalised wondering what are those magical things and magic can only be good so it ends on a more cheerful note. Really enjoyed reading this. Milly x
