Silent Poem

I finally wrote a poem to go with this pic, as suggested by my friends here.


I have been taken down

like an ornament

put away

silent night

I’m going to walk away

like a senile patient

in shame

silent day

I’ll forget what I’ve learned

like keys left behind

at the lake

silent descent

And deposit rusty bones

like leaf covered litter

decorating a

silent trail
