Be Quiet Please Poem by Cheryl Lynn Moyer Peele

Be Quiet Please

Rating: 5.0

Silence sings, if you listen.

earthly frequencies
can be detrimental
to your health.

A deaf girl says she
talks to angels in the cracks
of a wall. Voiceless spirits
calm her.

The twisted spine of a boy
liberates him. He flows away
from the unbearable here,
returning pain-free.

Let go of what you know.
Turn off your bleeping radio!

Your mother was right!
Loud music can steal
your soul from the heavens,

where starry silences speak
to inner ears.

I liked your poem so much I put it in my favorites. Your mother was right! Loud music can steal your soul from the heavens, I love this... and happen to think it's true.

Cheryl, everyone should find your place of quiet, it is in us all, at the silent centre of our being. From this life grows, creative force emerges, and we arrive at peace. Lovely poem, I shall keep it close. Bob
