Silence is Golden?.

“Peace”Shouted the Big Man “Someone stop them just for an hour”St.Pete made him a drink and said “relax.” Azrael had an idea. Later, utter silence. All was good but then the masses were all holding up coloured speech cards. “Get me a blindfold” the Big Man cried. Satan laughed.

Silence : Acrostic Poem

Silence is golden, it can cut you like a knife.

It can be your down fall or even save your life.

Listening to silence can be the hardest thing to

Earsplitting silence can easily deafen you.

No silent exit , leave on a note of discord

Cover your ears to soundless applause.

Earth shattering peace, like all things has its flaws.

Silence

Not a single sound

Silence stretched for miles

White crosses in the ground

Each a name on military files.

All represent a life lost

Wiped out at such a cost.

Silence screams so very loud

The souls below are proud.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Silence seals her lips tight

Silence locks her door at night.

She has been warned not to tell

Or she will get more hell.

Let’s pray she finds the strength

To break her silence at length.

Silence has the loudest shout

But we need to listen out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Silence screamed at us.

Silence yelled and made a fuss

Sadly no one heard.

FanFoFeb: Walking Home Daydreams

silence

silence

The  cars passed  me and there it was …. Silence, it grew.

I heard the birds singing, I looked up and saw the sky was blue.

I walked alone and watched the trees dance in the wind, free

This  could  be anywhere , anytime. I could be a younger or an older me.

Still no cars, the sun shines  but it is cold, February holds no heat

Then  I am twenty one again, warm sun, pushing a pram and I have bare feet.

The newborn sleeps in innocent bliss, my flame haired boy toddles beside me

He chatters away to  me in his own tongue, he knows what he says but it is still a mystery to me.

Looking up into  the sky  I see the unmistakable out line of the Kite his tell tale, tail diamond shape.

His rise and fall is a joy to behold , the wind lifts him  his wings spread wide like a vampire’s cape.

Still the silence lasts  and I hear my beating heart. I hear it boom, boom in my head

Down down swoops the kite, he has found his meal something good for him, something dead,

Just  as I get used to golden silence as it caresses me and relaxes me a car turns into the road

The warmth is gone, leather boots on on my feet. No babies here  only the Kite in the sky glowed.

The car passes me and  then another a steady stream now drowning out  my heart drowning out the silence

The Kite hovers again then he is gone. I walk alone, along the road to home traffic noise wiping out my  thoughts.

Snow Haiku

Amid the winter's snow

Three Haiku on the present snow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Black sky spangled sparky bright,ice cold.

She glides over the lake

Silver iron leaving in her silent wake.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Snowflakes falling on the lake

Tiny silver crystals formed like stellar plates

It’s a wander of nature clean and pure

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Silently falls the snow coating Rome white

Deadening  city sound at night

Not been seen for twenty five years.
