*'In the beginning was the Word'


but now the lake of words is dry
the eyes produce no rain
from clouds of thoughts

the pink flamingo
of my nose bows down
to reach my mouth

i do not keep the silence
i do not... but guess
the silence keeps me...

or may be not...

    Wonderful poem! I dwelled on the word silence in English language and was sorry it refers to the state of mind like 'I am silent' but never to the process unless it requires an object 'He was silenced'. Wonderful writing in terms of everything especially in terms of going back to the meaning of speech itself. Just look at all the thoughts you've given me :) thanks. (Report) Reply

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
