Silence (2017)


Silence. Drawing by Harvey Dog.

silence
the elusive god
dissipates into vapour

words tumble
endlessly
pointlessly
float aimlessly

the danger
of silence

getting louder
more disturbing
threatening

silence
the fear
of the unspoken.


Notes

A poem I wrote shortly after returning to Ontario after 13 years in Northern BC. A short poem on the power of silence. I tightened up a couple of lines before putting it back up on the site.

Written: July, 2017
