Silent Thunder

Your silence
thunder in my heart
drawing words in my head
thoughts confused by dread
I silence myself
constrict my heart
erase the words
letters scatter apart.

I started a new blog to save all my poetry and poetry lessons. I will still use for all other things writing when it comes to young children, but it was time to get a space for my own words. Glad you stopped by.

Poetry Friday is hosted by Jama at Jama's Alphabet Soup!


  1. Hey! Congrats on the new blog!

  2. "I Think in Poems" is a great name! Having a separate blog for your own work sounds like a good idea. I especially like "erase the words
    letters scatter apart."

  3. Betsy, congrats on the new blog! Isn't it nice to have a blog of one's own to keep one's words in? i like the strong visual at the end of your poem. Looking forward to coming back... :)

  4. How wonderful to have a spot dedicated to your poetry! I've subscribed!!

  5. PS -- perfect blog title, too!!

  6. Fun blog! Congrats on creating "a space for my own words" - something we all need. =)

  7. Letters do have a tendency to scatter apart. Nicely done!
