The pen broke last night
when I asked it to go

The night stopped being
scary to hide behind
my colorful dreams.

At the bus stop
he covered his face with
a newspaper that said
Silence is healthy for
noisy souls.

The voice in my head
was tired finally
when I did not give
it anything to chew.

A squirrel wants to
ignore me to enjoy
solitude and wild berries.
I want to ignore it too
and breathe in the silence.


19th Day of A to Z Challenge. Today, S is for my another favorite word Silence, though I’m not really that silent.

Today is also 22nd April, Earth Day. I saw too many status messages about the day since morning. I wanted to write a blog post on it. But then I changed my plan. For a change, I’ll re-pot my plants today, save electricity, walk, make garlic green pasta, save water, and finally find out ways to stop those junk mails in my mailbox ( not email. The real one.) to save paper( and trees). 

What do you want to do for our earth on Earth day and everyday from today? And do you love silence?

  1. Thank you so much, Indira. I love silence. 🙂 Thank you for sharing it. It’s an honor. 🙂 It’s all because of your blessings. 🙂

  2. Loved your post. I stopped my mail a while ago so there is little that is delivered, just a random advertisement and one or two bills. I do everything on line now to include all banking. Sign up at your post office or maybe on line to request them to stop all junk mail. It is worth it.

  3. “The voice in my head
    was tired finally
    when I did not give
    it anything to chew” – Bravo!

So what do you think?
