butterflies sunrise sunset

wordless in the silence of twilight
soft breezes caress thoughts in flight
a new dawn awakens dreams of once before
a place opens, holds space for so much more

wordless in these chaotic uncertain times
within limbo… out of sight, out of mind
yet a color, a fragrance lingers in the air
bringing a thought shared, a time you cared

wordless as the sun begins his rise
in the distance morning shines in colored light
last night dreams fade from the mind
as well as olde memories once again left behind

wordless as chores of everyday life beckon
a memory flickers, a smile crosses my lips for a second
a song floats on the wind, its words scatter
chores need to be done, those simple things matter

wordless, each step continues into the day
music keeps the demons at bay
in silence I pay tribute in gratitude
feeling so much in this peace-filled solitude

wordless, I wonder where the sound has gone
will it keep its distance, waiting for another dawn
perhaps it is resting from years of chaos
keeping to itself for a much needed day off

wordless in the pursuit of who knows what
maybe remembering what mankind seems to have forgot
thoughts spin and weave as the day flows on
wandering within to find a place to belong

wordless becomes the norm of the times
sound has no meaning if closed off, left behind
listen in between those soundless words
a sliver of truth perhaps will be heard

wordless the day fades to dark
the only sound, a beating heart
a book opened, full of soundless words in lines
feelings come through the pages,
finally the cold distancing left behind

  1. There is definitely so much between the sounds mary. It is us…but many are too afraid to listen ❤️

    1. awwww the smile that crosses all lines 🙂
      Hello my faraway friend… hope you and your neck of the woods is well ….
      Thank you for always taking time for me Mark… it is much appreciated, I am grateful you grace my world even with all the miles of water and mountains in between… I think most have self-isolated long before this moment, sad, but yet there is always a reason for it

      I love the quiet, I dream of having a day to myself where I don’t have to make any decisions other than what breakfast will be 🙂 I hear my whispers again…I see again…I also see Gaia healing through all the tragedy and chaos, the video of Venice’s canals so clear was beautiful if man would stay out of Her way, and quit trying to fix Her in their uncompromising ways, She would Be as She is meant to BE….

      LOLs I could get a roll with that one so I will once again say….
      Thank you for your kind words and all you send my way

      Be Well…Be Safe….. Take Care…….You Matter………

      1. Mankind will learn dear lady…but only when we lose something. It will take a piece of us with it.
        In the meantime I am blessed with a lovely heart and words from across that great divide. Thank you for sharing dear lady, what you share can only create…never destroy. Love is the builder 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

      2. ahhh I think we lost the beauty in the simple ways of life…. well I have always picked up rocks, feathers, pieces of wood/branches, ect…. I was watching lichen under a magnifying glass one, so simple but such a complexed work of art too 🙂
        Love and Hugs from Texas…82F the sun is finally out, though I did enjoy the storms that brought the rains….so many evening primroses covering my yard 🙂 Life is Good… and yes Love is the Builder,
        Have a great day:)
