#SoCS June 1/19 – Silence

Linda’s #SoCS prompt for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “silent/silence.” Use one or both in your post. Have fun!

The Colour of Silence

Silence is golden
I often hear say
But I'd like to think different
That is, if I may
For silence can come
In a total array
Of colours, depending on
What you're feeling that day

That deafening silence
Can feel rather black
When you're thinking that
No one's quite got your back

The silence of loss
Comes across as quite blue
When you're filling a void
Not knowing what to do

When silent anger is simmering
Deep inside your head
No, that's not golden,
You're just seeing red

That silence you hear
When it's late at night
Kids asleep, no disturbances
That's purely white

In the peace of the moment,
When all is quite calm
That silence is purple
It does you no harm

And yes, it can feel, sometimes
Silver or golden
As you accept life
When your body does olden

A rainbow of quiet
See, what I said was true
Feel silence in so many ways
Not only just a few
Cos silence it comes in
In many a hue
We all like some quiet
Which colour's for you?

    That’s true, sis. Silence has many faces. It can be insightful and liberating or depressing and scary.

    Great, how you get the differences of silence meeting colours. The last part remembers me on a school rhyme too. 🙂 May the goldene silence be with you, this weekend Sis! 🙂 Michael

    Did you sing ‘Silence is golden’? I know I did. Many fine words, spaces and grammar – always a treat to read. G:)
