Connecting in silence

My last poem for the year as a busy time at work and home is coming up. I will be back sometime next year :) I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2018. It is going to be a good one. I feel it.


Connecting in silence


They set in a safe distance on a bench in the park,
the morning sun crawling along the horizon eager to
to find them in its sight. Tentative they started talking
than fired a fountain of words onto each other, which
like drops bounced off the concrete next to them.

A whirling wind, caused a gap between their words. They
stayed in this soft place of silence, eyes meeting eyes,
hand meeting hand. Shedding the feathers of the ego,
feelings showed and showered them with pulsing passion,
connecting them to the core, in a world beyond words.

    Connecting with stranger in a public place is hard.

  3. When two people can sit in silence comfortably, a certain magic bubbles over and speaks volumes. :)

  7. Shedding the feathers of ego. So much is possible when we can do that.
    There is so much more to communication than mere words. Words are good
    though, needed. The word drops splattering on the sidewalk was a really
    creative touch. Me likes.

    Hope the business of the end of the year does not drown you.

  9. There is much to be said(?) for the comfort and bliss of quietude. Perhaps holding hands and just saying nothing is a lost art?

  22. Wishing you and your loved ones the very Merriest of Christmas Joy and every happiness in 2018.

    I see couples sitting quietly enjoying their silence. Some say, " Look those have nothing left to say!". I think, " Their silence is golden end speaks volumes."

    Thank you for your poetry. Looking forward to your return.
