In the Silence

Come and sit here in the silence
of the waves that crash around us,
that spray salty tears in bursts of boldness,
drawing secrets from your lips.
All the while the seagulls sing of sorrow,
feed on every word revealed,
then fade towards the darkened realm
to discard your cold distress.
Come and sit here in the silence
of the gently lapping waves,
savour the emptiness of your soul,
let me fill you with love, your own.

  1. I would like to wish you an early very HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY since (according to my wife) I am getting older and more decrepit by the second and might forget to wish you a very HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY on Sunday. So, I hope you have a very HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

  2. I have looked and found that the vessel holding my love be as empty as the soul sitting in the surf, high tide is something worthy of anticipation.

  6. Yes indeed!! I'm there in that same reverie each time I'm at the shore listening and hearing the 'sounds of silence within my soul'. You captured Anni at her best in this one Ms. V!!!

  9. another great one from you. i think silence is a void we can fill however we wish...stillness and silence, perhaps are much like emptiness, awaiting something to happen...something to fill that space.
