Friday 3/26/10 - "SILENCE"



Hushed hallowed space
Outside sounds all around
Of birds and breezes
Of running in the rain

Inside total silence reigns
Exquisite interior quiet
Peace and prayer exist
There in that universal union
One with God

All is still, sweet silence
No note, no tune, no word
Just miracle muted music pure
Love's power sure

Prayer Girl

Flash Fiction Friday 55
is a story in exactly 55 words.
Let the G-Man know if you write one
and read the ones of your fellow writers.

I like the silence after a snow. Luckily, there isn't any snow forecast.

Simply wonderful, especially loved the last line about the miracle muted music pure.

My 55 is Twisting Roots

That's a lusciously quiet meditation, with a stunning photo, too. I can almost hear the faint tones of a violin.

Hey PG...this poem is EXCELLENT! I am happy to see you are inspired once again to write your "55" in that genre. Actuall I loved it--I love silence, except for key-sounds tapping in front of my computer.

PEACE. Love.

I heard background music with this one. I believe it was Bach's "Sheep May Safely Graze". Beautiful.
