A rhapsody of rock and roll rain, tango twisting winds, samba snow flakes, step, skip, spin and swing. So the subdued sun remains solemnly shy as its orchestra of rays fail to compose. Recalling vivid verdant visions, a promenade of naked trees tremble, serenading melancholic melodies, On a bitter branch a nightingale sits in silence. Silent One 15 March 2018

Hi Silent, your orchestra of words paint such a vivid canvas. Your words create such vivid images. From start to finish i was gripped by the journey through your words. It is nice to be reading you again my friend. Another excellent write Silent. Your words take me into the heart of the canvas. Have a wonderful Tuesday. Your friend....Mike.

"on a bitter branch" stands out though I really love the vision of the shy sun. "its orchestra of rays fail to compose. " Just beautiful. Always, Laura

My heart sank when I saw the word rhapsody, thinking you had entered Constance's contest Silent. No one has a chance against you. I love that song too.

Non-nidulating Narrowdale Noon Nightingale needs some birdy-num-num nectar. Well I like a bitter alliteration too. Beautiful poem....bittersweet even, sharp and dry as 70% Dark Cacao Chocolate.Maybe Nightingale needs some honey.

So hard to sing and to be happy when the clouds are gray and the sun doesn't shine ... They say the weather affects our mood and I think you've expressed that beautifully in this poem... Very nice work!

Wow, ZZ! This poem says so much with so few words. It's chilling and thrilling at the same time. And, the music is so perfect. Great writing.

Such a breathtaking and deeply poignant poetic presentation Silent, moving me to tears. Powerfully dramatic and emotional both your spectacular poem and the outstanding MJ music video. Your alliteration is stunning and your poem is superb with a killer last line. A fave my talented and enlightening friend! Warmest wishes. ~Susan
