Our Silence


Thursday 08 December, 2016 by Uncle Spike


Time has marched on;
Many things have changed in our world;
Perhaps more so here in Turkey and the Middle East;
Sometimes, our silence says more than words.
– Pray for Peace –

    A powerful performance shared by a blogger new to me, that I think will become one I follow from now on. I concur. Pray for peace.

    So good to hear from you again Uncle Spike. I like the sense of continuity, the image of a sail boat being back on even keel when you show up in my inbox. Wishing you well and sending you care ❤

  22. I love that song 🙂

    Now it’s haiku time …

    In a world gone mad,
    the power of sealed lips
    speaks untold volumes.

    Sending love and prayers to you and your family x
