Ticking bombs and negotiation


Building a bridge

Walking up steps

Sliding down hills

Sudden gaping chasms


Between two people

Sometimes too awkward

To even contemplate

So they remain silent

Rather then ask words

To negotiate

The best of a bad situation

*tick tick tick …I’m a diplomat at heart but there are some situations that require time, space and a change in weather rather than more words poured like kerosene on a fire.

Silence is the peacekeeper that is best deployed and knowing when to use it
