National Poetry Day

Hooray! --- it's National Poetry Day 2014 ;-)

... and this year's theme is; "Remember".

As per recent years, here are a few lines, with the annual theme in mind:


today I remember
in the quiet
but amidst the noise
too, nothing drowns
out the silence
of emotion.

now, as the day
begins anew
each moment special
every breath cherished
and yet
the silence.

On days
it can deafen
all else swept
aside, as memory
seeps through every
pore, each detail
clear, warm.

for me the choice
to forget, but to
for what else
can one do, before
the silence.
