|air and silence are both insular and conductive of human emotions - are we not not most accurately defined by our enemies? - jude this is another searching rendering that teases the emotions and causes self examination by the reader - enjoyable work - I wish you love and peace my friend - Jon Michael|

|sometimes silence is golden...sometimes it is not, however, true enemies are to be valued so much more than...false friends. for it is said, if a man finds 'one' true friend in life he is richly blessed because in the end, your enemies cannot do anything to you without some help from your so called 'friends'. inflated; what we have here is a lack of communication. thanks for the share.

|Air and silence, two essential elements that can be both devoid and full of meaning. Interpretation of such ambivalent states is very personal and I like the way you said this in few words. After all, air and silence are what separates us, but they also allow us to come together.

|enemies at least have an opinion. It's the not caring at all that is more than disapointing.|

expectations. wise words to ponder, poet.

|Your poem is eloquently powerful!
Yes, I find willful silence to be cruel...distructive even.

|Aloof or aloft? That vacuous space that exists between souls when the babble of mindless pleasantries has ceased (indicative of Level One relations), or the high-flying field of both energy and heat so kinetic that it creates an illusion of vibrational stillness, as in your recent portrayal of "signing" (singing? vibrato?)? Your end quote would certainly lead us to perhaps interpret the mood as tragic rather than a triumph, but the fact that you "mentioned" the phenomenon prior to departure suggests this is a connection that has been more than superficially sustained. It's funny how we can, on the one hand, be kept afloat by the unspoken understandings that exist between kindred spirits (that say more than words ever can), whereas the incessant torrent of alien others' words can weigh us down like millstones. Another Judeaic all-conveying canvas that leaves interpretation entirely open-ended and according to each reader's point of view. An airy silence certainly resonates with me having just returned from the wilds of the windy northern moors! :)) xx|

|A very poignant, and wise observation. I sense a bit of personal experience, or is it just a poet's creative license?

|sense of disappointment is palpable, Jude;
betrayal may be too strong, but disappointment, yes;
asks the question who's side are you on
when the chips are down?
you said it very well.
