SILENCE

Stark silence … nothingness sublime! No horns,
No screaming sirens, voices terrified
By quiet, media on “MUTE” behind
Shut doors. Just crickets chirping arias
To night times distant stars that prompt
A question. Has divinity used space
To hush its universe in chaos or
To prompt the human mind to contemplate
Extinction where its vanity to be
Remembered lies forgotten in a grave.

To some, rich faith insists a caring God
Will number all our bones; that after life
Dark night gives way to glories’ light. But that
Assumes whatever caused all this is trapped
With feelings and pathetic needs to cry
For reasons. God is greater than frail hope.

I’ve lived: known wars and death; know joy and love
When sunsets cradles me in ashes, I will pray
To be an atom chirping joyously
My hymn to all the mysteries of time.

Carl Sagan said we are all made of Star Stuff. We come from that and return to it. Something about that appeals to me. Your writing is superb and prompts these thoughts.

We've just returned from a five week, 5300 mile car trip.
We went from city to country to city and back again, several times.
The comparison between
ChicagoKansasCityStLouisColoradoSpringsSaltLakeCitySeattle
and the

nothingness

of the prairie
is stark.

Wind
crickets
grass
corn
and we wondered
why we live in town

Back again
we remember
but the silence ...

Beautiful.

If a 'TallPockets' speaks in the 'woods' and NO ONE is around, does he make a 'sound'? (SMILES)

HELLO! .... ALWAYS ENJOY your writings and thoughts!

My BEST to you and yours .... PEACE .... SALUTE!
