"In truth I am but a wordsmith surrendering my words to you....Kristy Tallman"™

src="http://www.kristytallman.com/blogs/silence.jpg">

Listen

silence is a mystery,
unbeknown to me,
a fallen voice from heaven,
unheard by those who strive to hear,
the calling of a lover,
lost somewhere in the darkness,
a kiss follows, a heart beats,
fingers caress the sound barrier
struggling to be heard,
the words fall from the air
drifting silently to the floor,
a cloud of dust rises from the pain,
a gentle breeze blows through the window
but the silence - remains,
the words are so simplistic
though their meaning so profound,
eight letters,
three words,
were they forgotten
or did they just go unheard,
too proud to listen
to the words one never hears,
because silence is a mystery,
lost somewhere through the waves,
crashed upon an ocean's shore,
I felt the pounding of it's course,
the words fall from the heavens,
on the tail of a shooting star,
a cool chill fills the air
as the ice freezes the window's pain,
the words they are so simplistic,
though their meaning so profound,
eight letters,
three words,
one sentence,
one moment....
                hush,

listen to the silence
and all that can be heard,
in the darkness comes understanding,
light to heal your wounds,
eight letters,
three words,
one sentence

shhhhh......
    listen.

Silence--how precious silence is. I often wonder how the younger generation will get along not having listened to the silence of their own mind and the world around.

Your words go on and on and in my mind that is a great talent and wish I had it. You are a supreme writer and should go far with your talent. God Bless

Kristy, this is very beautiful writing filled with sublime imagery and subliminal emotion. Excellent work.
