Universal Language











It is in silence
where our actions speak loudest
understood by all

Participating in d'Verse Poet's Pub Friday Poetics with Sheila Moore. For today’s Poetics, the silent film era is the prompt.  The object, to write about one of the actors, compare and contrast silent films with present-day movies, or maybe write a parody of one of the above scenes.

  1. So true, Ginny. Without all the gee-whiz technology and scores by John Williams to further the plot, the silent film actors really had to ACT. Very nice.

  3. I second what everyone already commented but also wanted to add that your haiku makes for some great real-life wisdom as well. Example is the best teacher and "talk is cheap"

    - wish I could think of a less cliched phrase but its way past my bedtime (smiles)

    I am so glad you joined in with us. Thanks :)

  5. We didn't appreciate exactly how good these silent actors had to be, using sometimes even just a facial expression to convey a mood. Lovely Haiku

  10. Speaking as a (sometime) actor, I can tell you you're right on the money. Nice take on a not so easy prompt.
