Sparkling silence is cast over a room
before the listeners start to swoon.
This poet reads her words so smooth
bringing back her own youth.
The words she says speak
of war, violence, children and life, shriek,
opening the eyes of so many
to both of death and life.
The unspoken speech of a still poem
that sits upon there screen or pages in a book
are there to revive the reals of life ignored.
In a restful state upon a page
a world is broken free from its cage.
So much damage can come from words
but sometimes silence releases life’s caged birds.
