a lunchtime moment

at lunch
I try to make
my own
little bit
of space
head lost
in a book
mind
elsewhere
amid the noise
and babble
the talking
and chatter
in this crowd
of people
(too many people)
but their voices
creep into
my quiet
and their
presence
can’t be
ignored
time flows
sand falls
my hour is up
I gather
myself
and step out
as the door
swings closed
behind me
I’m enveloped
in silence
soft and gentle
on my ears
a blanket of peace
laid over me
just birds and footsteps
and the sound of my breath
