Silence

Dawn banished night, slowly
merging lilac skies with heaven
kissed seas.
Momentarily the line between
heaven and earth was blurred,
the horizon - a fantasy.

I touched this place once - the
silence of that perfect hour.
It was as if the Earth had paused
a moment - to breathe.


Poetry Jam prompt - Silence

  3. "It was as if the Earth had paused

    I felt that way once up in Nova Scotia - we stopped to take a break from riding and there was no noise at all. You could almost literally hear the earth breathing with you.
    Beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing it.

  5. silence of that perfect hour.

    we often don't take time to think and breathe… It is interesting that we are often reminded at sunrise or sunset - but how many of us take the time to admire such things?

  7. Bev, this is the second week in a row you have posted over at Poetry Jam and not visited other poets. Not even those of us from PJ who have visited you, nor reached out to others. There are FIVE of us above who have already responded to your poem...... Thanks.

    1. I don't know where you are looking Mary but last "Jam" I visited 20 of the participants. This week I have already visited around 6 or 8. I visit in my own time not to a schedule. If I haven't commented on a particular poem that is my personal choice I'm sure you'll agree.
