Where Silence Once Rained

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.” 

― John Lennon

Let there be storms where silence once rained
Let there be voices raised in utter outrage
Where complacency and apathy once reigned
Rise up, Rise up People, Get Enraged
For greed has become commonplace
Create a beautiful space for goodness and grace
Where all are loved regardless of skin color or race

  1. This is wonderful, Linda. It would suit the prompt at earthweal.com to a T – beating the drums of change. I wrote about the rise of indigenous people across Canada the last few weeks in opposition to a pipeline through their territory. If you feel like linking, I’d love it!

  2. Thank you so much, Linda. So lovely to see you there. Your poem suited the prompt to perfection. Time for change, things arent working well any more. I am made hopeful by the strong voices, rising.

  3. I very much am intrigued by silence raining. It’s a new thought to me and I love it. I may havee to play with it a little. What are other kinds of rain? Cats and dogs, of course, and meatballs. It gives the sense of being silenced and not choosing silence. I imagine in the raised voices, it rains no more!

  5. Intriguing thought about letting storms interrupt silence. Too many of us remain silent when we should let our thoughts be heard. Thanks Linda
