Great photo! Reminds me of London’s East End. Last stanza of poem my favourite along with Mine the silence. What a line.

Great photo, nice poem. Cold, wet and silence but are you really peace inside? What are running in your mind?

Simon & Garfunkel give their approval. Rain has been a real catalyst for some interesting music in the past 60 plus years.

One of the most intriguing songs from my youth:

The Sound of Silence

Simon & Garfunkel

... “but my words... like silent raindrops fell...

And echoed... in the wells of silence...”

You help make our souls recall a place from our past in your writing and photography yet, by focusing on the little things, you help make us more aware of our presence. You’ve definitely gotta gift Richard!
