“Silence is sometimes the best answer”

Silence is sometimes the best answer

The challenge to contemplate and wait

The whistness of mangrove and samphire

Cicumstances dictate to wait at eight

Like women with the waist of hourglass

The challenge to contemplate and wait

Sometimes in silence we let the time pass

Blocking the noise of everyday humdrum

Like women with the waist of hourglass

Lucky to have nature where we come from

For tomorrow is bright and full of hope

Blocking the noise of everyday humdrum

Once we listen to silence it has a lot of scope

We can achieve many things in detail

For tomorrow is bright and full of hope

Fresh snow and sea breeze we inhale

Silence is sometimes the best answer

We can achieve many things in detail

The whistness of mangrove and samphire*

Our winter is back

On Chinese New Year, too

Fun with Jill and Jack

Better drink coffee brew

On Chinese New Year, too

With tikoy and tea

Snow filled leaves the yew

We are full of glee

Fun with Jill and Jack

Snow balls fight with them

Then they want their snack

And then play with their drum

Better drink coffee brew

Stay home being warm

Cosy, to name a few

Hope there’s no storm*

    That looks like a very complicated form! I like how you use “wait” and “waist” and the time of “eight” and the “hourglass.” Along with waiting patiently, and silently. Snow makes every sound so muffled.
