Written by Jacob Ibrag

In response to the silence, we danced. Making music

in our heads. Matching step for step. Imaginations linked at

the hip. In response to the silence, we danced. Not shying away

like the others did. Seeing clearer than ever before. Living in

each others hands, dancing in response to their silence.

Over the years Eyes + Words has turned into a wonderful budding family of over fifteen thousand people across all platforms. It’s surreal and humbling to know that the art of poetry and story is alive and thriving. That being said, I hope that the creation of the Eyes + Words Writers Group serves as a vehicle and launch pad to help and support writers and the aspiring ones to keep manifesting words that many out there are searching for everyday. So go on and contribute, lets elevate together. Everyone is encouraged to share their experiences with anything involving writing.

  5. This is absolutely beautiful – to be able to dance in-step with one another even without music. Must be soul mates. πŸ™‚
