The World Becomes Eerily Silent…

The World Becomes Eerily Silent…
By Apolinario Villalobos

The world becomes ghostly silent –
…without the chirps of the birds
…without the splash of the ocean waves
…without the undulating leaves caressed by the wind
…without the cry of the newborn baby wriggling in the crib

Can we let the eeriness of silence
be broken by the burst of guns
and explosion of bombs?

Can we let the eeriness of silence
be broken by screams and shouts
of those tangled in deadly bouts?

Think about these…before it’s late!!!!

    • In an fb site, I saw the photo of a yellow bird trying to extract a drop of water from an obviously dry faucet, in so doing did an acrobatic…what a pity, I thought….based on that, I immediately composed the poem….thanks!
