The sun releases her scorching smiles,
And her thundering rays smear abruptly
Echoing into the eardrum of the world
Reaching from a far fearful forest
Unknown to the magic of all fortune seekers.
The sound of silent screamers spike
Into the deafened ears of the jungle
And boom; its planted bomb explodes
Piercing in the wave of soundless swings.
Like the tintinnabulation of wind chimes
Blowing into the roaming breeze–
The solemn sound of silence
Rings like church bells on Sunday mornings.
Creating sweat in the hearts of the stars.
Like those flapping sounds
Created by those meandering bare feet
Touring the four walls of an empty tent
The storming winds of silence
Mesmerizes the memories of sane souls.
From where evolved such scenes of silence
Or from silent womb surface such?
This is a blinded fact days after today…
