I DID NOT KNOW ...


I did not know that silence

could sound like light ...

I did not know that music

could stretch a landscape into forever ...

so it could blossom into

a million gardens ...

or that my eyes could paint

a cobalt sky ...

I did not know the sight of you

would change my life forever ...

into a daily hourly hosanna

of my love for you ...

I did not know!

  8. Greetings my friend,

    This is one of your best but I must qualify that since all you print here is one of your best it is only logical that it would be one of your best.

    Thank you so much for your contributions to life.

    Goodlife.

  12. A charming poem of revelation!
    "I did not know". Now I know that "silence could sound like light", "eyes could paint", etc..

    The revelation happens, of course, when one falls in love. Love reveals the finest things we experience in life.

  17. I could sink into this photo and take a snooze and listen to the sounds.

    I personally believe that music can do just this. And combined with a love so true what more could we be searching for?

  19. Love sets you beautiful images, and within the beauty smiles love.
    How are you, I have been so idle with visiting here ... a little of writers block ... grandchildren, work and creative art via my camera and computer.
    Hope you are well Margie,
    will try visit more often,
    hugs for you.
