A Strange Relation - Poem by Seema Aarella

I burry the thought of writing,
Because I miserably fail to describe
This strange phenomenon
For I feel the pureness of the script
Is in the words virgin and unstated
Which I hope you will read in my eyes
When we meet during an auspicious communion

The loud vibrations of vocal chords
And roaring waterfall of speech
Irks the stream of subtle Feelings,
And I prefer not to speak
But convey more than thought and said
Through the soothing comfort of silence
Which I hope you will hear during my extended sighs

Do you know what eyes observe
And perceive does not belong to them
Why then pine for mere sights and scenes,
In the darkness of your secret dream
Won't I appear as an eternal moon?
Flaunting beauty and radiance
That will be savoured by you and you only!

It is strange the way we feel connected
We notice the earth, feel the rain
But can't touch or see the emanating whiff
I am not wrought of soil, you are no rain cloud
But our world is fragrant with nameless smells
About which we both contemplate
Identically In our individual solitudes!

    a deeply cognitive metaphor:
    ''But convey more than thought and said
    Through the soothing comfort of silence
    Which I hope you will hear during my extended sighs''
    of a wonderful poem....well written.10+++

    a tremendous poem involving two persons, an abstract thought yet so very concrete when poeticised by such tangible imageries, teh state of mind which is elusive and in its elusiveness lies its beauty, the poet herself confessess that this is a 'strange phenomena', when this poem and THE JOURNEY are read together they throw a pattern into teh poet's present pattern of creativity which is missing in her earlier poem, plz carry on teh good work, thanx (Report)Reply

    Words can not write and speak the fragrance of silence and the language
    of eyes. A wordless moment of solitude is the focal point of this beautiful poem.
    Best Wishes
