March 4, 2022: Raj Bharaj (poetry), Edward Michael Supranowicz (visual art)
Silent breath of the soul
Silent rhythms of the ocean
Silent sounds to words
Silent gaze of your eyes
Salty tears to silent friends
Silent dreams into silent nights
Silent notes into silenced songs
Silent time to clock ticking
Silent days like the silent nights
Silent brothers and silent kin
This is how my life flows
