|profound and beautiful,Thank you,
Why do you raise your finger
To your lips to signify silence, man?
“Gold is silence!”
know that not everything that shines is gold,
and that being loved is very sweet,
but it is even sweeter when you are told about it.

|SOMETIMES SILENCE IS GOLDEN...IT DEPENDS ON WHETHER ONE'S 'TATTLING' MAY HURT SOMEONE. IF THERE IS A CHANCE THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN...I WOULD CHOOSE TO LEAVE IT IN GOD'S HANDS AND LET HIM TAKE CARE OF THE LIAR. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

|"Silence is not Golden" reflects the wisdom of experience. I especially like the line, "There is a way to say whatever should be heard." We men seem to have a real problem with this. Too often we seem to phrase our thoughts in blunt, insensitive words or go off mumbling and griping to ourselves without speaking out when "Silence is not Golden."
A needed, thoughtful piece.

|So very true. Its usually best to speak the truth, especially if it will help some one else or our selves....M|

You must have noted that my Blog was not of a very profound nature. Your Poem, is quite another matter. You are right, of course; perhaps you have expressed the quintessence of a wise man who said that before we speak, we must assure that what we are about to say is true, is kind, and is necessary. I rather think if these three prerequisites were met, golden silence would resonate throughout the world.

|You are right in expressing this truth. There are countless times when silence is not the best option at all. Thank you, Barbara. Love and best wishes,
