Notes found on the refrigerator August 2015

09 Aug

Dancing In Silence

Often,

Silence is a noise we try to avoid.

Whether in conversation, in loneliness,

Or, when we are bored.

Yet,

When it is present, it opens the door

With no mind, to a room softly making love

To no one, in no space, for nothing.

So, before entering

We kiss our mind gently good-bye;

Entering where our heart is,

Dancing to the music, of a silent chord.

********

Light Green Panties

Can-Can leaves dancing in frenzy

Lifting and turning up

In Rhythmic breeze,

Fluttering in the same direction,

Without any shame,

 Their light green panties.

Oh, such beauty,

And, oh such a tease;

Waiting for the applause

Of the incoming rain.

********

Song Bird, Oh, Song Bird

Song bird hiding in the bush

Beside our porch.

Born in the spring,

Finally twirping a song to sing.

We hold each other’s hand

At sunset.

Creaking in time, swaying along

In our old weathered swing.

    So beautiful! I especially love “dancing to the music of a silent chord.” What an original image – the leaves as green panties dancing the can-can! I love it. And then, so sweet, the two holding hands in the old creaking weathered swing. Sigh. All so beautiful. I am replete.

    So true that silence is something we often avoid, but it is in silence oftentimes we find our heart. Some beautifully penned words today, ZQ.

    I love the whimsy of the green panties and the sweet song bird…but the Dancing in Silence is so beautiful and my favorite. I love sitting in silence…relaxing my mind….

    ‘So, before entering

    We kiss our mind gently good-bye;

    Entering where our heart is,

    Dancing to the music, of a silent chord.’

    loved the set of poems.
    Light Green Panties” is such a tease. 🙂
    Song Bird, Oh, Song Bird” has a poignancy that can touches the heart.
    But my favourite is the first one. excellently penned. and yes, sometimes, in silence can we truly find ourselves.

    Your refrigerator notes are very profound – i particularly like the piece about silence – it is much devalued and yet so very important

    A great set. I really like how they are presented as something you find on a fridge.

    This: “When it is present, it opens the door

    With no mind, to a room softly making love”

    This is lovely 🙂 The best description of silence I think I’ve ever heard!
