Silence; One single impression

A field of sunflowers

Screaming at me in yellow


I sway in the whispering wind.

Dancing to a blues sung by the heavens

The sun speaks to me with burning passion

Reigniting the fading embers in my tired eyes.

A orchestra of colour,

rainbows explode onto distant horizons

A cacophony of sounds

long forgotten

A song unsung by time and modern life

Now we stand in awe of

the silence.

    That we do. Silence is the canvas on which all our realizations are painted, I think. Great imagery in this.

  7. Ruth says:

    Wonderful and fresh images… I like this!

  8. brian miller says:

    nice…love the descriptions…i have found hose fields…far off where the world is silent except the world…nothing man made…ou took me there and it felt good…

  9. I would love to hear you read this! Have you ever done spoken word? I have a group on SoundCloud you can access through a link in my nav bar on my blog should you ever consider. Your work is brilliant!

  10. The poetry works so well with the picture. I also really like how you used colour here. Its sparseness makes it stand out that much more.

    Great work here.
