The Greatest Sounds I Never Heard

The greatest sounds
I never heard
The sweet kiss of a child

without words
The power of a smile

Snow falling
On a sylvan field
Heads bent in silent prayer

The touch
Of anothers hand
To let me know they care

The magic
Of a sunrise
That heralds a new day

The comfort
Of a mothers love
Watching puppies play

Acts of kindness
You did not know occurred

These are all
The greatest sounds
I have never heard

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
