SILENCE

 

SILENCE

In a world of noise
Where no one is heard,
We could use some silence,
A bit of quiet.

Take a step back
And be still,
Watch for the response,
See the surprise.

For silence can convey
What words cannot.
A feeling or a thought
Hidden in words.

Don’t be afraid 
To make your stand.
Dare to be different,
Refuse to mouth inanities.

Be a breath of fresh air
In the violent storm.
Stand strong and silent
In the world of noise.

A BOOK IS A TREASURE

 

 

A long journey to become an author,
Days of soul searching and hard work.
The words need to be enticing and clear,
A bridge to the reader’s heart.

A movie camera sweeps across scenes,
So does a book’s point of view.
One point of view shows one angle
While changing points of view reveal more.

To be lost in a book is indeed a gift,
An escape from the mundane and boring.
A visit to far away places can be
An adventure to open your mind’s eye.

Once completed, a book is a treasure,
A symbol of the author’s hopes and dreams.
A confectioner’s delight to be tasted and savored,
To be remembered by the many or just a few.
