Silence, Nested In The Sand

Coming apon, a large desert rock. Along side, a smaller white rock, so I thought. A sun bleached skull, nested in the sand. Silence, with a gentle desert breeze moving my many unanswerd thoughts; quickly race threw my mind. This O'l skull, once riddled before with dream's, stolen memories, for ever gone! A wide open jaw; Imagining, this poor O'l soul screaming from the other side, but never heard. So I walked away, and wisperd a few words: Rest now, youv'e been found! 03/07/14 Written By, Larry Berdoo WRITE ON!

Especially liked this one, Larry. Reminds me of the aptly named Skull Valley, Utah where I spent a few years. Keep writing on. Rick

Rick, I enjoy being out in the desert. At night as you know, you can almost touch the stars. California desert nights. Thank you for stopping by.

Good to meet you, Ralph. Yes I surely agree with laughter . It sure is a great gift when given a special human moment. Somewhat letting the soul have its way with your inner self. All in good fun. Thank you for your nice comments. ~~WRITE ON!~~

Linda, thank you. I didn't know until yesterday's e- mail from the Soup? I never seen it. Iv'e been writing and reading many poems, and thank you's. To me that is a honor with me that people read them. Speaking for myself, "no contests," only enjoy writing and sharring. I truely believe I will loose the esence of my write; "speaking for my true self.

The imagination of one that is lost in the ether. Love the creativity of this imagery. And you couldn't have said it better, WRITE ON! I believe we found a slogan for the Poetry Soup community.

Happy to share. Thanks again, Michael. The WRITE ON! logo is tattooed on my hand. The skull and wings, with pen, represents freedom of mind, release with write; let those thoughts go,~ like seeds in flight. Where they land,~ they will surely grow!

Hello Larry, nice positive ending... , Stopping by with a nice, sweet Welcome to Poetry Soup. I will find much delight, in reading and in time become familiar with your way of writing. But, for the mean time, I will greet you with the same smile, other poets passed when I first join the soup 4 years ago. I wish you the best when it comes to your poems. I hope you get to meet all the nice poets around here. Starting with me. SKAT :-) Please drop a hello and tell me a little about yourself if you like. I would like to be your newest poetry soup "FRIEND". Hugs* SKAT

I believe threw my writing you will find a horse of a different kolor. A little eccentric at times. I'm still trying to find my way around. Meeting people, and reading many poems to get a feel of the many characters here on the Soup.~~~Thanks again~~~SCAT A
