Y/. A Whiff Of Conscience


A whiff of conscience
whispers in our heart
listening in absolute silence
hearing it, a work of art

A bright flame of goodness
for our eyes to see
A fire of rightness
warmth on our skin to feel

Soft winds of love, so kind
blowing breeze of soul
illuminating our mind
an ideal, an inspirational call

Nectar of honesty
Roses of integrity
Aromas dancing merrily
Cherry blossoms of charity

A whiff of conscience
Sitting somewhere deep inside
Shining throughout the universe
An inextinguishable light

    Excellent poem, so simple and poignant. Our souls do whisper to us, if we'd only listen. Fantastic imagery throughout, flowing with a rhythm of spirituality. Thank you, RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Excellently written poem but sadly as Valerie has put it, for some its really not the case, some don't even have conscience at all. I wish many people would read this superb poem of yours Hans.

    In the stillness of silence we hear a mysterious whisper like a gentle whiff of wind passing over, communing with our soul urging us to do actions which have the aroma of roses and the beauty of cherry blossoms...... It whispers to us what is good and what is evil..... It is a segment of the Universal Spirit! Beautiful poem.... Reading this I felt it has close resemblance to one of my poems.... at least in content... A Mysterios Voice. I invite you to read it! (Report) Reply

    Hello Aufie. To me this poem is so beautifully spiritual, it took my breath away as I read. Eloquently expressed, it flows as smooth as silk. I love how you impart to your reader, that it is in the silence our conscience comes to life, whispering gently to those who are willing and open to listening to it. Lovely use of alliteration and various figures of speech! I have so enjoyed reading. Thank you for sharing. Blessings... (Report) Reply

    Let's hope that whiff of conscience will always be around to keep us all in check, although sadly for some, , this is often not the case. Great write Hans. (Report) Reply
