UNHEARD VOICES

After a cacophony of ramblings, day bows gently--- Infants slumber with ease in cradles, lanterns flicker above tavern stools as mellow winds drift around gold-hued roads paving the way for flights of quietude: Somehow, mothers hush their loved ones to tend angel dreams before sunglow ascends… while elders pat loyal dogs in tenements far from home: And young girls close overused iPods, widows reminisce; single fathers open the fence, tired— Somehow, heartbroken women lay on empty chairs alone, Lovers fondle sigh deeply relieved. This is nightfall. Its language of voices breathes through different tones, climbing into our hearts where we exhale syllabic pain and glory, until robin-wings unravel our incantations to liberate us against hidden songs. ~ 12/3/2018 For Silent One’s Voices Contest

Day bows gently...and the real work begins to take care of the loved ones..tired..alone. The essence of your poem I found in these lines:This is nightfall. Its language of voices breathes through different tones, climbing into our hearts. And everybody can relate to that. Well done, nette. My very best to you for a TOP win.
