Silence: The conversation continues

By Susan L. Daniels and Noel A. Ihebuzor

it echoes–
this pause before words
weighted breath

It speaks loud
the empty spaces
between words

those moments
minds falter before
sharing truth

truth haltered
for so long, now free
freeing tears!

and floating
on that salt river
soft releasing

hidden fears
uncertainties now
flowing away

tumbling down
tongue now unleashed to
wonder why


***Wow–it seems two poets can say a lot about silence!  This was fun!

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
