With no words that come to mind
no feelings, thoughts or voice.
In silence sit with tightened lips
stare glazed by watered eyes.
No songs are sung or poems read
all books are shelved and closed
Within the thoughts of all closed minds
lies dead a spoiled rose.


  1. So true, J!!! Excellent! I love the vivid images! Wow! 🙂
    I tend to be VERY open-minded, so closed minded people make me sad…sometimes mad.
    Ha! Open-minded…Maybe that’s how some of my brains fell out! 😉 😛 Just teasin’! I’m still pretty smart!
    HUGS!!! 🙂

    Reading this, a quote from Kafka sprang to mind: ‘A book must be the axe for the frozen ice within us’.
    I suppose the same could be said, pari passu, about a poem.
    Hack at them 😉 !
