“a great silence”

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1391 – A Great Silence  (Taken from a poem of Rumi’s)


birds sing
leaves rustle
no human sound

Here is my attempt:

sad silence
one voice less that makes me smile
a good friend is gone


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
