~ Oxymoron ~ - Poem by MS. NIVEDITA BAGCHI SPC. UK.

Delight in illuminated darkness
Towers all occult visibleness!

We hear not listen
See but don’t envision!

Hurry without hasten
Brilliance minus glisten!

Pleasure is punctual pain
Rhapsody in bleeding vein!

Joy is generous grief
Punditry in brief!

Agony in elation
Flight on cloud nine!

Deafening silence
Aids hearing in essence!

Bolt from blue
Nonsticky glue!
.
Giving [read emptying] is getting
Free space [read peace] spilling!

Muteness of silence
Exuberates ado in abundance!

Gulping gala fasting
Savoring minus calorie feasting!

Knowledgeable idiocy
Wisdomful proxy!

Orgasm in frigidity
Like turgidity in aridity!

Scorching sun in solar eclipse
Sun tanning in clothed striptease
Basking crispy bun from fridge!
.
Blinding lux
In darkness efflux!

Inertic momentum
Is speedy stagnation!

Life is quick sand
Bedecked grave la grand!

Stay calmly active
Without being proactive!

Stay actively calm
Zero all er uh um!
.
====
Glossary: Humbly given for what I tried to express: ~

[1] Oxymoron: Conjoining contradictory terms
[2] On cloud nine: Extremely joyful
[3] La: The purpose is just to juice up sentences and to make their sentences sound more Chinese
[4] Er, uh, um: Expression of hesitation.

    Oxymoron is a typical feature of the romantic and rhetorical styles - the styles of the era of aggravation of social contradictions - R. M. Meyer

    I missed this wonderful poem back in January. It’s delightful and profound at the same time, and I like that about your work. You’ve achieved everything you set out to accomplish in this compelling tapestry of very well expressed thoughts and ideas, and well-chosen words.

    There are too many brilliant lines to mention but among the ones I find most satisfying and original are, Muteness of silence Aids hearing in essence; Inertic momentum Is speedy stagnation! It’s a wonderful visual poem as well. Very good indeed, niv, a 10
