Somewhere Past The Fallen Limbs

Somewhere past the fallen limbs
Of old tangled oaks and elm
Breaking silence as lighting dims
Rushing whispers split the realm

Mocking silence with a hush 
It slicks the stones of shallow brook,
Exalting in babble with a gush,
I turn to take a humble look.

Searching fluid sounds of creation
Articulating His wordless voice, 
Tears fall dryly at my sublimation
To waters endless song , rejoice.

Brenda Atry

forget all the other good stuph "searching fluid sounds of creation---articulating his wordless voice" others may not feel the word, but it makes me want to dance, but not with a blonde who has a husband and a baby....really good--see, i say there are many poets who write more often than not quatrains, but i've read you a few times and we sort of talk the same language about life, love and cotton candy (but only pink---the blue has an aftertaste) cool poems have to come from a cool lady AND THAT YOU MUST BE...thanks for writing apoem that makes me want to slow dance! FONDLY ~free cee!~ Phreepoetree

I am very happy to have been able to read your poetry today Brenda. I do not have a lot of words to comment on it but I want you to know I did read it. Every poem as with every poet has a different meaning and I do not wish to misinterpert your poetry. I do love reading poetry here and I get inspiration from others poetry which enables me to write new poetry myself. There are lots of wonderful people who give great comments here and I hope they all read your poetry and comment. Love, Carol
