You must walk on
That sway sweetly
Because silence is the word
Telling you to move forward
Speaking to your mind
Comforting your soul
Picking up your feet
Along the trail of truce
Even if it only leads
Back to your own heart
for dVerse Poet’s Pub, Open Link Night
Truly that is exactly where we need to be led 🙂 So beautiful!
Thank you so much for your comments! 🙂
great closing line….and i like that silence is the word calling you forward….the trail of truce to your own heart takes the cake though…smiles.
Thank you, Brian.
I need the silence
to finally hear
So true…life is so loud. Thanks for “listening” to my poem.
Very nice. I forget about the calming affect of silence way too often. This is a great reminder. 🙂
silence can pack some powerful words.
It can…we just have to stop and listen. Thanks for dropping by. 🙂
misundertood, ty for leading my way here to this beautiful poem and photography of yours. i have been practicing ‘silence’ lately, to shut out the world, to listen to my heart, to be still and this poem resonated so deeply. this line especially;
‘Along the trail of truce’

Those are some of my favorite wetland grasses – they just move so wonderfully! And this is an amazing piece! Well done!
Thank you so much! It means a lot to me when others can relate to what I write.
So peaceful! xx
Thank you. 🙂
This is beautiful, and understands that solitude is a healthy, much-needed time, away from all that distracts.
I like your interpretation….and sometimes, the only resolution we can find is with ourselves.
Thanks for your comments. 🙂
Great last line!
