Unsung

Fay Slimm.

 

 

Unsung.


A little silence mothers more truth for those
who dare seek and embrace
unsung whispers   
for if not smothered stillness guides minds
to find in heard quiet
something of beauty waiting behind sound
that to listeners
is more than fanciful dreaming of antidotes.


Mysterious how halcyon balm reaches
the core of healing, 
for is seems only at rest can stillness
stifle noise-stress wholly.

      The salve is to be treated respectfully so it cannot be expected to be free

      Thoughtful use of quiet words and calm rhythms. I appreciate how you can compose something so deeply personal without one reference to "I' or a specific event or figure from your life. Quite a gift.
      PS minor typo in penultimate line: "is"?

      True words Fay, those silences can say so many things to us in our lives.
