Hail and hearty laughter

Hearkens all in the room

Harried conversations

Halted by a moment

Hush appears synchronized

Having a shared silence

Heartbeats the only sound

Margaret is tending the Play it Again promot in the Garden this time. She ressurects 3 past prompts from which we may choose. I chose Mary’s from March 2013 called Mixed Bag Friday where Mary asked for poems about the ordinary. Here’s that link too:

Thank you, ladies.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  2. Awesome, Carol! I’ve experienced that phenomenon or when someone laughs too loud or says something “politically incorrect or whatever” and the hush that follows all can hear a pin drop. LOVE the image you paired these words with!!! Thank you! ❤

  3. It wasn’t really funny at all, was it Carol? But we do laugh at the unusual even when it’s sad, irreligious, politically incorrect or causes hurt feelings, etc, etc. And often your “hush” appears spontaneously for the entire group. Thank you for expressing this phenomenon so brilliantly.
