I Sat In Silence - Poem by Daffodil Decarie

It is sad to say
when we don’t have any
come out painfully
just like a ballerina
foot clubbed
toes cracked
neath inflamed floors
blood of inadequacy

Just like the day
when Generals
used to lay
unbroken necklace
of defenses
so that-
You and I
and the rest of
the community
sleeps tightly
at night,
when we are
protected frugally
from being sorry, of
not having any to say.

    Novel construction and an interesting idea - that we are being protected from our inadequacies and thus ourselves. I too, would sit in contemplative silence pondering that! Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply
