Loud Silence

Potent making of monsters stems from loud silence.

Silent

Note: Sumana over at Poets United asks us to write about “Silence”.

After reading Sanaa Rizvi’s important and relevant post “Rage Against the Machine” about racial prejudice, I was reminded of a quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. “In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

Are you keeping the right kind of silence?

September Days

Evening breeze
Turns into cold;
Light up the fire
Bring in the wine
Let’s stay inside
Play flirtatious
Games, entice
Summer to fall.

Mushrooming in the Fall

Glimmery valley
After a rainfall
Forest floor opulent;
Fairies sprinkle magic
Entice lovers to dance
In nature’s abundant love.
