Companionable Silence

Companionable Silence

A Poem by Zypy Kirubi

             We simply sipped our drinks in companionable silence
             Graceful! utterly relaxed, lazily content
             Unafraid to broach any topic, but not a word spoken
             Sparks flying, igniting a blaze of emotions.

             We did not touch or wrap in thunder
             Or carry any restrained conversations
             As lovers often do, in their happy disposition
             Happy at so many levels, minds slowed to a crawl.

             In a calm precision, In a twinge of excitement
             Contagious! his face lighting up in an indescribable joy
             Mine dredging up a pleasant smile
             We simply sipped our drinks in companionable silence.

             Until twilight turned the sky grey.
