My Words, My World

First drafts – A few pages in the large wilderness of the world of writing

Broken Silence

Today I heard the beat of a swan’s wings

I’d never heard it before

It broke the silence of the smoke of a cigarette

It rippled the silence of a glass of wine

I followed the swan across the still of the lake

I followed its flight across the face of the winter sun

Today I heard the beat of a swan’s wings

and wished I could fly

  1. it’s amazing to be swept away so grandly in such a small moment…

  2. It was. As soon as it passed overhead I just thought ‘I’ve never heard that before’.
    Thank you Joseph.
