Talking Silence with Susan Daniels

Susan Daniels Poetry

By Susan L. Daniels and Noel A. Ihebuzor

S:
it echoes–
this pause before words
weighted breath

N:
It speaks loud
the empty spaces
between words

S:
those moments
minds falter before
sharing truth

N:
truth haltered
for so long, now free
freeing tears!

S:
and floating
on that salt river
soft releasing

N:
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!

    My following your blog has been long over due, Noel. Here I am, at last. 🙂 You, Boomie and Susan will make a terrific trio. 🙂 How about that? I’m all eager. Celestine.

    Boomie, It was your wonderful Haiku that sparked my response. The last verse is a wonderful ending and a vanilla cream topping on the cake.
