Fay Slimm

Silent Music.



Silent Music.


The tune of water pouring in porcelain
feeds ready stalks
while dead leaves cut and discarded
relieve crowded stems to 
settle sweetpeas and lilies for regaling
by scent any tense mood.


An armful of garden's floral offerings
petal themselves
gently into fresh water and
within a few moments of watching
rose-stillness stress improves.


Flora the mystical Goddess refines
nature's singing
so that flowers' silent music
may be felt by listening poets like
me who perception pursue.

    Oh this is a beauty, Fay! It has an ethereal air to it, felt by your delightful descriptions! You certainly captured silent music in this piece.


    I love flowers FAY and your sweet Poem reminds us that although at their most beautiful in bed ! They retain their beauty ~ and fragrance ~ if lovingly cut to grace indoors ! You are a graceful Gardenia in my imagination ~ Yours as ever BRIAN. Love the subtlety of your visual ~ awesome B.
