The prompt of this week’s challenge is inspiring me to multiple responses. Which is probably counter-intuitive because the prompt ask literally for silence. Here you go.

  4. I like both versions of the song. The original might be a little more depressing, but still a grand philosophical outlook for the time. The tree in winter is an excellent example of the word. It is easy to think cold, lonliness, impending misfortune. Maybe even the silence before the storm.

      1. That’s certainly there! There is something about silence that evokes loneliness.

    2. Thank you for your kind comment! I like both versions of the song for sure, but the second one is perhaps more fresh and more contemporary. No matter the interpretation, the song remains deeply melancholy. I like that.
