Quiet Moments

Whispers in the wind,

a tickle on our souls,

dance shore to shore,

across swirling ocean waves

Silent nuances skirt over

mountain tops and settle valley low

Whispers become echoes

as they bounce from canyon walls

riding the desert sun

across scorching sands of time

Dusk sweeps the whispers

to the convoy of the moon

We gaze upon twinkled dreams

til they shoot across the heavens,

sending us whispers in the wind


Words scratch like a cat at the door
and leave a lingering sting like nettle.
Though she knows they aren’t true,
she wonders if others think they were.
After all, teenage girls live by the words of others.
Teenage girls gossip and sling untruths
like boys sling rubber bands and spitballs,
and no one is the better for any of it.
The one left out hangs her head low.
Her face reddens among the whispers
as she always thinks it’s about her.
Lies. Exclusion. Whispers.
Cliques are all about them.
The ones who do it?
They live in fear.
Fear of becoming the one
who is lied and whispered about,
the one who is left out.
And still, teenage girls live by the words of others
