The Silence

– * –

I have no words

just the silence of respect

let peace be found.

– * –

A haiku written in response to the post by unfetteredbs.

I don’t know… should I even post these thoughts? It feels like I have a guilt of ego at a time when ego should have no place.

In contrast, let each person speak – or hold as they so choose – according to how they would wish to convey their respects.

Let the fear of disturbing silence never stand in the way of broaching an issue that would interrupt such horrors ever again occurring.


The Stream

– * –

two banks
ever awaiting a bridge
a stream flowing by

– * –

Sometimes we need to be brave and reach out even though we risk rejection.
