I Heard A Sigh

It was soft and yet harsh
a silent opening for a question
but no answers could be formed…

so the question remained
unasked.

Then I heard it again
louder now, exasperated
perhaps

another opening ~
but would it only be
interference?

Listening closely,
all became silent

and in response,

all I could do

was sigh.

Sunshine,
A little different perhaps, but very true. This was enjoyable to read, and left myself pondering, about the question.

*sigh*

sometimes, you have to take that opening. . . other times, there are no words. . .

wonderful my friend. . .

           Sometimes no words need be
                 spoken.....
                      only a sigh.....

Hi Sunshine

I'm in to moments of nothingness at the moment,and this reflects that,so I love it.

These moments are so loud don't you think,and sometimes last forever.

Sometimes a moment is to long
For me to sing my lone sad song
And then I heard the sound at last
It was only another second....past


Best wishes

Jon

Karilea~
Such emotion is often expelled on a sigh.
You did it just right.

I found this intriguing...wondering who made the sigh..and what happened next?

Jon, Marge, Tess...thank you all for your comments.

Tess...I'll have to work on that...perhaps the answer will be found later today...

Very provoking into the thought. I loved the sigh as well...it lends to this perfectly.
