Will You Listen…

Listen close 

And you’ll hear 

The walls have stories to tell 

Of men and faces 

Of times and spaces 

Listen close 

And you’ll hear 

The walls have secrets to tell 

Of words once said 

Of tears once shed 

Listen close 

And you’ll hear 

The echos of ancient years 

Never left their places 

Somewhere between

The bricks 

They always kept

Their traces


About Sam

Cerca Trova is the Latin for ” Seek and you Shall Find “…. I’ve been in constant search for meaningful answers to many issues in my life..i have found some and many are still missing… I found answers in music, in poetry,in other’s words,and my personal experience… Yet I’m still seeking answers for so much more… I would love to share with you what I’ve found so far,and take you along on my journey in seeking the rest…

  1. I’m really fond of your writing. This one made me think of Hampton court in London, the walls there look like they’ll speak any moment and tell you stories. Well, most historical places I’ve been to sure have a legend to share, but in Hampton court the feeling was over-expressed …

    The wall keep tears and memories, I felt that too when I was in the ancient catherdral of Saint Servaas in Maastricht, as if every sad emotion of people long dead still was there, between the walls. Wonderful read.

  4. Wonderfully told story, Sam. I am enchanted by old walls and buildings. I can stare at them and see so much of what must have been. Love this poem,

    This is a terrific take on the notions that the walls have ears and that events leave a permanent imprint, a palpable energy. Nice work.

  6. I like this 🙂
    …the immortality of stone has many secrets to share.
    Well written.

    I’ve always been fascinated by intricate design and clouds. If given the time I would stare for hours finding the faces. Adding the stories is something I will have to try in the future.

  8. Somewhere between the bricks….there’s a lots of memories. I usually think just like that when I’m around the ancient walls. A great piece Sam!

    Ohhhhh, I like this one very much! I believe that we do leave our energies where we have been. I like to think about what kitchen tables could tell about former owners and visitors. Thanks for this lovely poem, Samer. Hugs, pat
