A Whisper on the Wind

A Whisper on the Wind

A Poem by Chain of Hearts
"

'The silence is sleeping'

"



The laugh is as cheery as the stars that night

The wind whips like a voice so sharp


The voice that cries and laughs and dances

In that silent night with the trees that rustle


The crowd upsets the flowers asleep

They disturb the birds nested in a tree


They don’t know how a little rose is dreaming

About going back and reliving the past


Blooming again with radiant colours

Coming alive in the midst of all the chaos


Tears may fall from a girl as she walks

Through the beautiful meadow full of flowers


It may seem so sorrowful and sad for the girl

But to the flower?


The flower would be fed drop by drop

By the bittersweet tears falling down upon it


It may seem so very small

But to the flower the drops mean that it has a future


Or like a child blowing a dandelion amidst

All of the stress, joy and pain


The act may seem small

But that child is helping the flowers multiply


So as the throng of people may dance all night long

The little flower just dreams his night through


With dreams of hope, freedom, and life


The flowers would be all squished against each-other

But are not discouraged for they are comforted knowing that they’re all together


So as the little rose sleeps contently

The tulips, and violets just say goodnight


Or maybe it was a whisper on the wind?

A mother tucking her child into bed?


The little rose does not stir, as the dreams are too alive

So she just sleeps until the sun comes up


With beams of radiant light


The flowers will bloom then as they do each day

And eventually will wake from their peaceful sleep

I really like your poem. It’s beautiful. The video is just stunning. Miracles abound… When we open our eyes to see them, how can we not be filled with gratitude. All of Life is a miracle and gift. Take every breath in gratitude.

Leanna, Aah I just made myself a cup of green tea and went out to sit on the deck. This is really weird because I neither drink tea nor have a deck. But anyway, this piece just rendered me inert and captivated. So much vivid imagery and a calm like a pond undisturbed. Using the couplet format helped allow each stanza to have its voice. Very nice job. take care...dan
