Silence is golden, in many ways. The voice- is very powerful. Easy to be persuaded, either way. Always be careful. Congratulations Michelle, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy

Back to congratulate you for receiving POTD, the honor your poetry deserves. Your title was chosen perfectly, as it is a well-known phrase that reader can mentally complete the thought, and it sets up the remainder of the senryu. I wonder if this is about a real person? You are one of the bright lights at PS and deserving of this honor ~ John
