Silence beckons (senryû)


deep silence beckons

no one hears the screams within

midnight chronic pain

Please visit my other blog post at Silence Comforts at Tournesol dans un jardin



A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!

    1. It is not as terrible as many who suffer more but the isolation and not believed is sometimes worse than the pain…so suffering in silence alone makes more sense.
