A Silent Spring

Poem By Charlie Chaffin

A silent spring,
Birds all gone.
Only the wind
Whispers at dawn.

What sounds are here?
Where is their song?
I don't hear one.
The silent spring long.

An ear tied to ground,
"Where are you beloved sound? "
Straining, stretching up an inch.
Still absence of the finch.

No birds singing for so long.
Can my eye find some song?
Looking up in trees to listen,
Eyes still alone start to glisten.

There never was bird song to hear
And there never will, is my fear.
I want to go and be alone,
But I'm already there, silence grown.

The Last Solider

I fight a hundred battles,
But none of them you see.
The battles that I fight
Are fought for you and me.


He drew the shade down in front of the sun,
A thick, medieval fortress wall of stone cast.
There in the dim and safe of the dark was also a dog,
A part of him dragged from the past.

Ode To A Mixed Up Therapist

Things taken against our will;
Things taken without our knowledge;
Things taken twice;
Things gone that leave a hole.

Stolen Childhood

S o help me find the metaphor of childhood
With which I can help you understand
What was stolen.
