Monday Poem: A Form of Silence

  A Form of Silence All these words are little more than another form of silence.

The words are lost on the winds, taken byContinue reading “Monday Poem: A Form of Silence”

Monday Poem: To Shape a Secret

To Shape a Secret We search for signs and give the power of names to all we see and all we hold, keeping special secret names for all we know, but cannot see and could never dare to touch.

Monday Poem: Here is the Place

  Here is the Place Here is the place we stood to see the world begin. Here is the time we took to get to know the world. Now all that is gone and lost and the days begin without us.
