Lets Sharpen The Silence...! ! ! - Poem by prashant shaurya

Maintain silence
Listen to the breeze
For all it says
is to wipe the grease....

Maintain silence
Listen to its yell
That why as rabbits
do we all dwell...

It howls again
out of disdain
And asks us to rub
the darkest stains....

Let's sharpen the silence
And come out hard
To show the devil
that we won't retard...

    A thought-provoking poem, Prashant, and an unexpected framework in which to place the concept of silence. Thank you for sharing your ideas so skilfully.

    you need to ask yourself, 'What is rhythm? ' Rhythm is flow. That's what it means. So poem have rhythm of the language, rhythm of beat, rhythm of the line, the rhythm of the rhyme, and rhythm of the stanza: but what holds all those rhythms together is the rhythm of the contextual flow of the poem. That's content. If the content is forced to make the rhyme it show up like a finger that's been hit with a sledge hammer. Forced lines for rhyme are a dunce cap. The context of the poem must flow into the rhyme and out of the rhyme like the rhyme wasn't there at all. That will make a good presentation. But there should also be metaphorical content and and good form to the poem too. You have the form down because of how you broke the lines and stanzas. But the music and metaphor suffer a lot in this poem. this is just my take on it, but you asked me to look at it. I only feel it is fair to tell you what I think and to qualify it by saying that is only my opinion. Good luck on your next poetical experience. Don't stop writing you got one of the three biggies under control. Just work on the other two And know that music flows and poetry is music. Have a good day Prashant.

    Let's sharpen silence
    Till speech becomes unnecessary
    Let's sharpen silence
    Until it cuts everything imaginary...
    Well done my friend. Profound perspective.

    go amidst the sound of noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence... avoid loud and aggressive persons because they are vexatious to the spirit.

    Meaningful indeed, once in my life I have also come to conclude to not to say anything or any plans because the devil might hear it and contradict… there are so many things that’s good in silence, and truly, we need some-time with it… we need to make friends with silence, not just once in a while but daily, to assess and to relieve our thoughts and pains in many different way, in silence we will see.

    Nice poem!
