Silence – Six Pieces (poetry)

 

a4932

 

Spring

 

after the thunderstorm

silence hangs in the air

 

a bright sun reflects

off the damp concrete

 

*

 

Lost Love vol. 7

 

we don’t talk

anymore

I’m erased

out of your

life

 

there is

only silence

left between

us

 

*

 

Deckmaster

 

when I play the card

only silence from

the other players

 

they know the game

is over

 

*

 

Food!

 

after I walk

back into the

kitchen the

silence from

the microwave

suggests dinner

is ready

 

*

 

Oops!

 

upon switching on the

new particle accelerator

all matter was ripped apart

leaving silence & empty

void

 

*

 

Darkness

 

once the sounds

of gunshots fade

 

all that is left

are dead bodes

 

& a shocked

silence

These were all written with the prompt silence provided by Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #100. Word count was 16, though in some cases I didn’t include the prompt in the count which is in the rules.

 

I was at a loose end this afternoon so I sat in my bed listening to music and wrote these…

  1. Very impressive variations all. I love the one about the gunshots, and I wish my microwave would go silent instead of beep every few seconds till I take out whatever is in there.. first world problems, huh?
