the silence of the bench

once upon a time…

I had two special visitors

I was the listener

relishing hidden conversations

sharing the hearts of two

woven as a single rhyme

free of all accusations

once upon a time…

the moon lit their night

silhouetted by the stars

love accompanied their dreams

whispers of hope

followed their every sentence

drifting down the streams


once upon a time…

hearts broke in two

I, the burden carrying witness

to it all

the love said adieu

cloaked now with fallen leaves

 a permanent black shawl 


To My Readers…Just my imagination, I am fine…since I know I usually write from my direct experience, I didn’t want anyone to worry unnecessarily.

    Glad for the PS – and to know your creativity is flowing so well.


  3. Sometimes the creativity is alive…:)…My grandchildren keep me active and thinking…alas, not too much time for writing…but I would not trade my time with them for anything! They have brought so much love and joy into my life!
