Silence

Silence

written by: Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH

 

there

it came

silence

fluttering

softly

slowly

nesting

on my lyre

my

delicate

clay built

lyre..

like

a sweet

honey drop

falling

from

a song

long forgotten..

a sweet

sadness

throbbed

while

its golden

feathers

settled..

the nascent

buds

fostered,

fondled

by hope

swayed

to and fro

to survive..

even

the flower

on fence

pouting out

silence..

my

earth

in soulful

silence..

up from

the sky

silence

falls

like a

tear drop…

the tiny

sand pores

absorb

the silence

cosmic

complete..
