Tonight at dVerse we are looking at love poetry without using ‘that’ word! Sometimes love needs no words at all ~ just being together is enough.

Snow suffocates the shuffling of nature.
No longer can wind worry at autumn’s leafy remnants.
All loose ends are tied up,
neatly buried in a new world that’s stealthed
in under cover of darkness.
In this wire taut quiet
my hearing is keening at the silence.
Just your steady breathing
breaching my ears.

    smiles yes…sometimes love needs no words at all.. it’s precious to share those moments of silence and togetherness.. happy anniversary to you and your wife!!

  2. Misky says:

    It’s that precious silence!

  3. brian miller says:

    ah…there is a lot of piece in that wire taut silence…
    in hearing just their breathing
    and knowing all is well.

    happy anniversary you two.

  4. Mary says:

    Steady breathing can be comforting to listen to for sure.

  5. I like this line – keening in the silence ~ There is comfort in the steady breathing ~ Happy anniversary to you & your wife ~


  6. Brendan says:

    This silence is so pregnant, so full. You make me think of my wife’s breath sleeping next to me and how that’s like a tide at a silent shore all night.

    Very touching poem.I see the togetherness and silence in the winter months in this.

  13. Lila says:

    I can hear the silence as I read. From the first line, this poem made me quiet my mind and really stop and listen closely.. smiles. Beautiful intro and beautiful closing (certainly no loose ends, winks).
    Absolutely gorgeous.

    Congratulations, too, on your anniversary.
