The Sound of SilenceĀ 

Alone in the palace of one, with the alarm it began 

Ringing and Ringing, waking from noisy dream

Task switched, coffee machine purred

One by one, got life and sound

Air for carriage, my ears for destination. 
Clocks ticked, second by second 

A reminder to me, be not indolent 

Noise was lonely, so music joined

Bells gonged, cars honked

Over and over, added on.
Goodbye, said the sun

And went home, for fun 

Leaving me in the dark

Lying alone on my bed

Listening to the last clock.
“Ah! Silence at last! How nice!”

Not did I utter, and out went the power

Air became still, Dark to darker

A slow ringing, reaching my ear

Went higher and higher, source unknown 

Tossing and turning, but can’t shake off.

Lonely and terrifying 

Silence became deafening

Drowning in the dark, longing for a sound

Hours passed, or minutes, not known

Until a sound reached my ears, pleasant and priceless

Stopping the sound of silence, A cricket’s chirp.

Daily prompt: Priceless

Ready to go


 Waiting for the seed to split

For the roots to hold

For the leaves to dance

Then I can grow, cell by cell

A bud that pleases no eyes or nose.

My efforts grow, with help or no

Opening up to the world.

Cared and pruned, or not.

Plucked and collected, or not.

Bound and arranged, or not.

Does it matter?

Earned a smile already,

From someone, Somewhere,

Life’s purpose fulfilled,

Now ready to go…
