‘Silence Rose from the Water like Steam’


Speech is powerful. In our social way of life, words shape beliefs, argue opinions and sing memories of forgotten generations. But what if speech was stolen from us? Poppy O’Neill’s tale ‘Silence Rose From The Water Like Steam’ examines our reaction to the loss of our most trusted means of communication. Would we fall, helpless and silent? Or does our communal understanding run far deeper and stronger than the power of words?

‘Silence Rose from the Water like Steam’ is the first story to appear in ‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 3’, an anthology of modern fairytales published by Mother’s Milk Books. Please visit their website for a copy of this beautiful collection.
