Priyadarsini G Menon


Then and then


Then, silence became my world
Laughter strangled in silence
Love stumbled in silence
Hope sank in silence
Dreams faded in silence
Along came chitter-chatter, voice of hope
Filling silence with words,
Words they remained
Drowning silence with deeds past,
Past they remained
Painting silence with colours of life,
Faded they remained
Driving silence with screams of laughter,
Screams they remained
Disconnect of words with deeds begs return
To silence, hope of peace, some quiet truth.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
