Silence can mean live and let live, the appreciation that I am and you are you. --Hugh Prather

The doors to living an enlightened life open with the keys of silence and just being. Leave your thoughts behind and enter-- Dr Robert Puff

Petals of Silence

A sweet sprite is silence,
But I can't see her face,
And can't touch her hands,
Yet I long to meet her often,
She comes when I call her.

Her smile kills all noises,
She descends on the surface,
Of my mind and speaks mute,
And puts balm on my head,
I stand up to all squalls in life.

When all hopes desert me,
I find refuge in her bosom,
Hear whispers into my mind,
When the world pricks my soul,
She stretches her arms to me.

I bathe in showers of her love,
The world wants to grind hard,
Mould my bones to fit in well,
Entangled in the claws of time,
She scoops up to set me free.

Antidote to clamor of insanity,
Serene shade of a huge tree,
As a placid sky she appears,
Rushes to quench my thirst,
Nurses to heal my wounds.

To her I open my heart and soul,
Love to speak without words,
Travel with her without baggage,
And locate what eyes fail to find,
She is tumultuous without a tone.

Is she eternity or reality I search ?
Her mien charms without seeing,
Is she secret of the world I crave ?
As my spirit she stands before me,
If she is nothing why I flock to her ?

As awakening so vital is my sleep,
With light, darkness completes me,
Can truth be found if I seek words,
I relish the blissful hug of silence,
And see petals of the fleeting time.

      This is great imagery! Silence is indeed, golden. There is so much cacophony in our world, it pollutes our thinking; our sleep; our hearts. Escape into peace and quiet is food for the soul.

      Voted up!

      Ann, glad that you liked this poem. At times, we are faced with a certain problem and we grapple hard ,but aren't able to find any solution. Tired, we go silent. Though visibly we are silent, there ensues an inner fierce seeking, All of a sudden, we chance upon a glimpse of hope and finally a remedy. Silence presents great questions and great answers as well. Thanks for your kind visit and for presenting such generous comments.

      Silence communicates many things so well. It means you can listen to the inner soul and to those things of the spirit, all those things you have conveyed so well in your poem.

      Beautiful!

      Kevin, you express it so well. Words and noises sometimes create a great clutter in our mind. At that time, silence is a lovely solace to us. I love your comments ; you touched the core of this poem. Thanks for your visit and for voting and sharing.

      So that is what silence looks like? Whether it is a jet or a flashing light there is too much noise at present, more silence would be wonderful. You have described it well. It is a charming poem with much interest Harish. I voted up++, shared and pinned it.
