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?

The Ocean Stirs

Cows chew cud
Rondavels flourish
This a paradise;
The ocean stirs
And sardines run.

Posted for Midweek Motif at Poets United.

In Full Sway

Two at the back
One at the front
In full sway;
Spring a season
For graduations.

Bicycle in the Lake

Note: Poem was inspired by the Midweek Motif, “bicycles, tricycles or unicycles” at Poets United. I’m also linking it to the Tuesday Platform at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads.
