Today’s prompt is “Silence.” I originally wrote the piece below well over a year ago. But it fits the prompt so perfectly that I am giving it a second airing.
THE SONG OF SILENCE
My fingers touched the keys of silence, and I played its song. It pulled from me a longing that I thought was gone forever – the yearning to release my soul in flowing words that birth new life in images and sounds that intertwine and reach another soul and draw it close to mine.
I feared my well was dry, my soul an empty sieve, and that I’d nevermore know a yearning to create with words that live.
Ah … now … the peace, the solace that replaces fear. For now I know I have it still – the gift to make words living things. All it took was spending time with silence for a while, and as it’s music played, it filled my well again.
