Silence says no words
Sound is mute to nothing
No rustling noises to be heard
Only silence sounds out
Sweet, unnerving for one
To soak it up;
To re-energize ones self
Before heading out in the noisy world
I sit and ponder
To no great wonder
Why you and I are here?
Deep in thought
For which I tried not
What thoughts I could try to spare.
Why the world is so big
That you could fit many boat rigs,
Holding many souls so dear.
I am one so small among many
I feel loss among any
Who are above getting plenty.
So I continue to ponder
Before mind goes asunder.
Push and pull of strings within
Direction seems to disappear
No one clear way to cut the cords
Which attach around me in all ways
Feeling like someone else pulls the strings
Will I find away to break free?

I would have to say it was fun being able to publish another book of poetry. I have some other poetry book ideas in the works.
Placed in cage
Bars surround all around
No escape can be found in theses walls
Freedom of flight lost forever
No feel of wind betwen feathers
No more to fly free above
Now sadness, darkness comes
To oppress to tame a free heart
Cool waves lap against my feet
Sand pools around my ankles
Gritty sand seeps through toes
I am held fast by the current
Sand retreats back into ocean
I stand locked in place
Looking across vast ocean
Thinking what maybe beyond distance horizon
What is there for me to see?
Will I ever get there to find it?
I think of this, watching sunset befofe my eyes
Distance rumble I do not hear
As I sit near windowsill
Gaze lost in mindless thought
I hear the inner echo of my mind
Telling me there is something out there
But, old fragile husk of my body
Senses that there is nothing to fear
I sit lost in time to all around
Not knowing what distance rumble has come
My body has quell itself to the end
But, yet my mind wants to continue on
Hoping the body might come back as one
