the Sound of Silence

                 the Sound of Silence in the / lofty heights,

careful not to tread on

                                        areas of darkness.

     do Not disturb those who sit content and quiet…..

                           …hushed / you will find the


               story unfold before you.

the Sound of Silence


My Own Backyard

 / in my own backyard /

                  –   a smooth sky bumping against the boundary of rugged rock,

              brilliantly placed in a durable outline /

the color of  /  red mud mixes 

                              with my foot print /

                                          leaving my resilient impression.
