8 Tears #poetry

silent steps

down a lonely lane

one tear fell

cannot tell from where

noisy clash

life’s busy intersection

two tears fell

my hand was there

a night of questions

mist obscured vision

three tears fell

my heart laid bare

surrounded by children

orange terra village

two large tears fell

swirling in hot air

Beckoned by … Silence #poetry

mountain dawn

Silent  touch upon my fingertips

in awe I barely breathe

captivated by the moment

how can I this place ever leave

Upon the plains I live

where golden waves rush by

but in my heart I cling

majestic eagle soaring high

To the mountain I’ll return

lay upon grassy bed

beneath the canopy of stars

dreams swirl about my head

With the dawn willingly rise

light greeting forth the day

not closing now my eyes

hands lifted, silent I pray

Shared with Poet’s United Midweek Motif – the theme this week is “Silence.”

How or where does silence beckon you?

 

Dawn’s Silence #poetry #photography

dawn

It rained a blue and silent yawn

catching warm colors that suited

dancing yellows, reds and dawn 

It rained a silent gazing yawn

dancing yellows, reds and dawn 

I held my volume level muted

It rained for me a silent yawn

catching drops warm colors suited

The Triolet fits the prompt of silence nicely I think.

The Triolet: Its rhyme scheme  is ABaAabAB and often all lines are in iambic tetrameter: the first, fourth and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines, thereby making the initial and final couplets identical as well.

Fenced In #haiku #photography

allure of fall 023

ominous silence

golden wheat field sentries

final resting place

Silent rose

thorny fenced in memories

rusting tears

The prompt for Carpe Diem is Fence and its the week of Halloween so I am having some fun with cemeteries, death and the like.

Silence (One Shot Wednesday) #poetry

The space between our words

almost as piteous

as the distance between

our hearts

***

Unbearable silence

when you abandon me

I am left enslaved

on a thought

for days

***

To measure loneliness

by absence

of sound

expounds emptiness

***

my heart is trapped

in this vacuum

silence

will  be

my ruin

Each week One Stop Poetry aspires to join poets together to express and inspire. One Shot Wednesday is an open community for those who  love to write poetry.

Final Goodbye

It never hit ’til you closed the door

didn’t turn back – no tempting smile

sauntered alone into gray

now you’re gone everything’s wrong

why wouldn’t you stay?

***

What about you will I miss?

cheeky grin, witty words

intelligence , talks late in the night

those lengthy kisses in your arms

***

why this empty vacuous silence?

love barren – irretrievable

were you tired of  us

savoring  memories?

***

thoughts of no more he/ no more me

how did the end begin?

little does he know

he has taken me with him

Looking ahead, without looking back (too often)
