Waits in the wings

calm, still

listens to the music

her silent tongue

taught her eyes to speak volumes


Silence, a petty one

dips, turns

enthralled, she cajoles

with her friend

making exception for only her


The choir girl

shrill, loud

is moved by the music

loses time

silence is enraged, sound engulfs...




The mistress raises a single fist.




Envious silence roars, 

is appeased

moves with the music

resumes her dance

with her long time friend.
