Be Still

the silence
is not, in fact, silence
nature speaks

if we listen

she knows things
in a way
wholly unconcerned
with appearances
or credentials
or facts
or figures.

a seen
within the unseen.

nature speaks,
she knows

when we listen.

Poetry Month continues, and this is Day 22 of NaPoWriMo for me. Today’s poem is inspired by Earth Day.

30 poems in 30 days. Do you dabble in word play as well? Let’s create 30 in 30.

Love and Ink,



Words, love them! Have some? Leave them.
