Black Silence Tanka

by Tony Whitaker

World filled with silence
millions of years from today
no more spoken words
our utile tongue lost its way
once read a mind, we had sung

I love philosophical poetry in any form and this one certainly cuts to the chase, Tony. The subtle impact of the last line makes it all come together. Congratulations on becoming The Telepathic Poet Of The Day.
