Who Silence The Silent One

On a reminiscing of a poet I thought I would make a call But on searching for this name sake I was left appalled The name "Silent One" was clearly there to be seen But of all his works - it was if they had never been What happened "Oh Silent One" and who had silenced all your words Seemed our friend had been picked on by no greater than a - "Turd" Whatever the reason "Oh Silent One" left us - he has now returned With this experience behind him and hopefully with a lesson learnt I hope to see all the blank pages refilled with words and poems of old And whoever took it upon themselves a greater punishment be doled Their cruelty and indignations not worth from us all a second glance As "Oh Silent One" returns to forgive and give us all a second chance Of an art that can only be held by "Oh Silent One" as the maestro he is Because honouring us with his enlightenments - is really truly the "Biz" Welcome back "Oh Silent One" . . . Indiana . . . ; )

Many thanks, Alexis, not sure whether it is really my poem or just the fact it is a tribute of simple means to Silent one, that has brought this to the fore . . .

Shameful "Eve" - Sensitivity in the end has its costs - Of all the works we have lost - Indiana : (

Great homage to my dear friend Silent One, Indiana. Your talented pen speaks truth unadulterated ... pure and powerful. Wonderful tribute. You are on my poetic radar now, I have duly taken notice. May love light your path always.
