Listen…Listen Shush...Did You Hear That? Listen to The raindrops falling Let us cry… Wash away Life’s bitter, stinging pain and Take away its stain. Listen to The ocean splashing Let us laugh… Lift our hearts With cool, refreshing waves and Penetrate dark caves. Listen to the thunder clapping Let us shout… Wake the world To all that makes it wrong and Righteousness prolong. Listen to The songbird chirping Let us sing… Fill our souls With hope to carry on and Yesterday, be gone. Listen to The wind song howling Let us rush… Race the clock To live life while we can and Fly within its span. But, hear now… The silence screaming Let us pause… Long reflect On that which we must do and To ourselves be true. Sandra M. Haight ~7th Place~ Premiere Contest: Shush...Did You Hear That? Sponsor: Anthony Slausen Judged: 09/21/2018 ~1st Place~ Contest: Didactic Sponsor: Regina Riddle Judged 12/08/2014

I like the oxymerons and the ambiguous sisters and subtle pointed of "common recollections">The silence screaming... The wind song howling... The Acceptable as a concept in need >Long reflect On that which we must do and To ourselves be true. I listened the voice of a gifted poet.Best regards,O.B.
