    this poem will have:

    no brilliant sun or beloved moon
    no butterflies or dragonflies
    no wings for me to fly my sky
    no trees with their branches flourishing
    in a warm spring breeze

    no guitar to lull me sweetly to sleep
    no picturesque enchanted continent of care
    no leaves falling to shelter me from despair
    no raindrops to disguise my teardrops
    no not one poetic word to give its theme more grace

    all this poem will have tonight
    is the soft silence it deserves

    The meal of meditators
    And yoga enthusiasts
    Hangover enduring drunks
    And hammered parents who finally insist
    If I get the gist of its importance

    THANK YOU for bringing SILENCE to my otherwise noisy existence.

    Love the flow of "being This Poem" TotalView

    Meditating to recognize the defiance
    Is this a different way
    Of realizing each others simple differences?
    Things may be more realistic than they say
    Now let me go back my oppositions
    Silence like seasons never stp nor tones down noice
    Speaking to the air will hold my current position
    Therefore we have to take every chance to make the right choice
