Silence bodes well for many reasons
for all seasons
Secrets are strictly kept as a principle
among individuals
Loving couples can maintain sealed lips
not to let slip
Blissful then is the love that runs deep
No forked tongue to cause dissention
Outright splendor and heavenly sessions
For all seasons among individuals not to let slip

For De's at d'Verse's  To write a new form  -  ovillejo
Sanaa's at Dash of Sunny, Prompt Nights  -  silence

  1. Oh gosh! This is absolutely incredible :D I so agree with you that silence possesses several such attributes which in turn make amends for a lot of things. Beautiful Ovillejo :D

    Thank you so much for your kind participation :D

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  5. Truth and beauty.

    Re: Bird feeder. It was a test run. The birds are not afraid so the two will be combined as one piece and be straightened. Thank you.

  8. some secrets are meant to be kept between individuals...especially when there is a promise to keep
    it secret.
