I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.
Silence Per Brenda's Prompt
Brenda Arledge has given the Hubpage community her eighteenth prompt, ‘silence’. Thes prompts always give us several efforts that are always wonderful. The prompts have made many of us try our skills in poetry and in short stories.
It took me a few days to decide if or how I might respond to her prompt. My muse takes a while to kick in sometimes. I really love when our TV is off and there is silence. I could not think of a better place than walking through the forest for silence, as you only hear the beautiful sounds of nature. There is a stillness in the forest that speaks to me.
Therefore, I wrote two poems.
Sitting quietly I take a breath
I look at the birds at their nest
Listening to them chirp so brightly
Each squirrel also searches about
Nuts the reward if they do their best
Calmly looking a fluffy white clouds
Enjoying nature at its very best

Forest - Silence
The worries fall off my shoulders
As I look up at the blue skies
I wander aimlessly in the forest
Finding peace in the quiet trees
Walking slowly I take a deep breath
The sun is peeking through the trees
I look up and see the chirping birds
I even hear the buzzing of the bees
Sitting on a stone breathing in fresh air
Squirrels chasing each other in the trees
I look at the wild flowers yellow and pink
As I sit I wonder what the squirrel sees
The presence of God I would never deny
Silence is golden as I pray to my father
The sun gets brighter, the day progresses
I would like to fly away just like the bees
The light breeze rustles the leaves
The beauty of the forest stirs my soul
I love the beautiful fluffy white clouds
Silence is golden it makes me whole
I finally get up to continue my walk
Listening to birds making their pleas
Nature is splendid in this great forest
I do not really ever want to leave

I hope everyone enjoys the sounds of nature and the silence of the forest. Being away from the TV, computer or people can be a way to reset your feeling. It is so calming. I hope everyone enjoys the poems and the videos.
