Solitaire Benches

Solitary Benches

“Sitting here at these benches, I hear the voices of women telling tales of love and I can’t help listening to older people telling stories of a lived life.

I hear the crying of infants in buggies and feel the fatigue of the athlete resting for a moment catching his breath.

I hear the click of a camera and I feel the swish of dry leaves falling.

You looked lonely and I chose you, but I feel the vibrations of the stories you secretly keep, I feel the warmth of the sun that tempered you, the moonlight that painted your curves in silver, the rain that penetrated your wood and soaked it.

Sitting here at these benches, I wanted to wrap myself in your solitude, instead, I will carry your energy with me for several hours and my thoughts will be occupied.

So much noise you make…and yet you seemed lonely…like me!”

This is an excerpt from my next collection of thoughts, ebook:  ©The Drawer Of My Thoughts.

Have you ever felt this way? You sit somewhere alone and suddenly you feel the energy of someone else? It’s a weird sensation.

Reingstorff House

Reingstorff House

This park is a nice one, quite wild but well kept, I don’t think is haunted. I exercise here, and a lot of other people do too. Canoes and paddleboats flow leisurely on a man-made lake, creating a relaxing atmosphere under the sun reverberating on the water.
The historical Rengstorff House is furnished in the Victorian style and opens its doors to events, weddings, and similar ceremonies.

I like to come here when everybody is closed in the offices. I listen to the voice of silence, it speaks to me loud and clear. Ciao,

    Valentina, what a beautiful place. Especially the Rengsdorff house built in the Italianate Victorian architecture style. The benches also a lovely photo. It would be a peaceful place for solitude thinking as you described it. Have a wonderful week. 📚🎶 Christine

    It’s a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing it here, Valentina. Yes, I know exactly what you mean about feeling someone’s presence. I liked what you said about enjoying the tales told by older people. Everyone thought I was a strange kid when I enjoyed hearing the stories from the oldest folks. Hugs on the wing.
