A balm upon an angry wound A quite impromptu hymn A whisper amongst shouting The silence of the din. A caress amongst the beatings A tear that grazes stone A single bird without a cage A mending of the bone. A sparkle in the velvet A well in barren land A lily in the valley… Continue reading Poetry: “A Sparkle in the Velvet”
