silence

Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #15 Soliloquy no Renga "the dust of stars"


silence
the dust of stars
shining radiance

© Jane Reichhold

filling the corners 
of the empty chapel

like the desert
the emptiness rings
in no ears
till the single mouse
comes seeking a home

moonlight
creeping quietly across
ancient dust
grains of sand pouring almost
silent through an hourglass


owl takes flight
swooping between trees
leaves flutter
with silent wings
the predator listens

ill intent?
mis-steps of the mind?
words blathered
wisdom searches 
for a worthy ally

a sound
in the light of stars
shining
tiny feet scamping
covered in stardust

from life's toils

Husband and the Parrot

Carpe Diem #1344 The Story of the Husband and the Parrot



mean words
teen nickname
parrot 

object of ridicule
trusts no one

nannycam
in the family room
spies

watched more faithful
than watchmen
