Of All The Senses

We silence what we don’t want to hear…

We feel

We see

We smell

We speak

The pain comes…

We hurt

We lack understanding

We choke

We ramble

Life has no rhyme lest we listen and hear

Perhaps It’s the one we should use the most


dVersepoetspub.com is considering “silence” today in poetry form. He mentions Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sounds of Silence”, one of my favorite artists and songs of my growing up years. I just considered all of the senses as I wrote this.

    When you mentioned ‘sounds of silence’, also one of my favorites, I had high expectations but the poem let me down. It, too needs a re-write! What is the last line supposed to refer to?


  2. I think we need to listen very carefully.

    It’s true. We silence what we don’t want to hear.

    Yes, you hit the nail on the head! Listening more and perhaps complaining less. Love how you laid it all out.

    Perhaps listening to the rhythms of life will help us move forward. But oh, the temptation to silence those things that challenge us is so powerful. Love this.


  7. May we do not listen so as to avoid pain, but sooner or later it catches up.
