The Sound of Silence

Pardon me for not including ad pics in this post, like I usually do.  I'm temporarily operating under less than stellar blogging circumstances.  Tm Creation's nature scene "Enjoy the Silence" reminded me of the song "The Sound of Silence."  As many know, the song was written by Paul Simon and originally performed by Simon & Garfunkel.  I never listened to all of the lyrics with comprehension - their version was kind of tinkly/sweet.  A few months ago, when I heard Disturbed's version, my mind was blown.  What a powerful song and message!  It makes me appreciate the beauty of the scene I created, thanks to my dear sponsors.  I included the song lyrics at the end of the post if you're interested, but would highly recommend hunting down Disturbed's version of the song for a listen on YouTube.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dared
Disturb the sound of silence
"Fools" said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence

              ~~ Sound of Silence, Paul Simon
