    Noisy Silent Nonsense

    That noise is mostly silence
    Like chatter in one’s mind,
    Like giggling done by things that run
    And wanting only to have fun,
    But fun is hard to find.

    I’ve let them have their freedom.
    They like my well-stocked zoo,
    I have no doubt they can’t get out.
    Their thinking must be all about
    How they can get me, too.

    ...Silence...

    With every word left unspoken
    They built a house of destruction
    Screaming in silence
    As they fulfill their penance

    Yet remorse resounds hollow
    From promises they just couldn't follow
    Silence piercing their souls
    From secrets left untold.

    Silent Witness

    There it sits
    and stares,
    accusing in its immobility.
    Its smooth grey form
    once pristine in its
    sea polished state,
    now marred by
    rusted brown and
    glutinous grey streaks.
    What have you done?
    it seems to whisper,
    hushed amid the swell of tide.
    What have you done?
    But silence reigns.
    There are no words
    can give it back the
    innocence of clean
    and pure geology
    it had before.
    Before my hand completed
    transformation,
    from rock,
    to weapon,
    in one fell swoop.

    My favorite lines:

    YesNo*

    … silence
    Like chatter in one’s mind,
    Like giggling done by things that run

    stephofthenight*

    With every word left unspoken
    They built a house of destruction
    Screaming in silence*
    As they fulfill their penance

    Silence piercing their souls
    From secrets left untold.

    Cassie Hughes*

    But silence reigns.
    There are no words
    can give it back the
    innocence

    Well done by all... a difficult choice... but this round I give the nod to stephofthenight*

    Congratulations to all on your wonderful entries !

    Liberty’s New Day

    Although liberty dies
    There’s a Moon that will rise
    Casting moonlight below.
    Oldish dreams fail to grow.
    Patient stars ever will
    Turn around but look still.
    Evening Sun creeps to set.
    We’ll eventually get
    Some new day some may see
    Although maybe not me.
