No Talking



You talk

when you cease

to be at peace

with your thoughts.”



― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet






eyes closed

thoughts take time

memories and dreams unfold



Haiku:     (My way … 7-5-7)


work the garden in silence

spring thoughts create dreams

flowers and ideas bloom


Haiku:         (traditional 5-7-5)


talk grows out of fear

that someone may read your thoughts

disrupt the silence


POEM:   No Talking


nature does not need to talk
a universal language espoused
nature displays her artists smock
all of the souls senses aroused

love exists in the silence
talking confounds the moment
feelings masked or showing defiance
hiding the intent like a poet

the small mind can not remain quiet
small talk hides the unfounded fears
trying to be as clever as a Broadway hit
always trying to one up on your peers

talking to oneself can be dangerous
noises to disturb ones serenity
peace of mind need not be adventurous
closing ones mouth can be heavenly

reticence keeps the heart from shrinking
try to quiet the noisy mind
be at peace with your thinking
talk only when you want to be kind.
