Quiet Everyone - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Quiet everyone
I say “Quiet”
Your voices attract disturbances
To my fragile ears like a magnet
Bring forth thy instrument of tranquillity
The bearer of all peaceful placidity
Impose it upon my genial sanity

Let’s have some peace and quiet
For once, this instance
Quietness is a precious piece of sound
Just before words get around
Breaking the strong bond
Of which is required to concentrate
Quietness imposes on our mental state of being,
A certain calmness amongst all this glorified madness

Only in silent thoughts
Can one create the ultimate
Relax and consciously meditate

    quite a poem
    exploring the ultimate nature of sound
    which can only happen
    in mediation
    when chatter ceases
    and the heart
    moans
    the truth
    a fine poem
