Silence Poem by Rosmin Elsa Mohan


Rating: 3.5

I once dreamt of an open field,
The bareness of which alone did shield,
A shadow so frail, in a shadow as such
I thought as much.

I felt it again on my bed at night
Darkness; through which I saw the light
Silence - to feel; and to feel so weak,
Silence, I think I heard her speak.

The crowd through which I made my way,
Gave me a second to poise it through
Shouts around, though I felt them nay,
The Me within, in silence too.

The hours of solace so gifted in tune,
A language unworldly, (beyond the moon!)
To realize it though, you need the frame,
Simple at first, ’ Patience’ the name.

Foes though come, are conquered all.
In her skin, she does stand tall,
Naïve it is, but more a bridge
Vain and slain, together abridged.

As every dawn turns the key,
Feel her true for a minute or two:
The price of it, without much ado,
Reflects around in the eyes you see!

When we light up the lamp of soul, When we need a shadow of solace, When we hear the whisper of soulSilence poured to our heart's sky))))))) Silence is palpableSilence is pleasurableSilence is like the glide of a feather in a gentle breezeSilence is like the melting of snow in a valleySilence is like the smoulder of embers into ash((((It's a great poem, I like it like a melodious song))))) Top marks! ! ! ! ! !

Darkness; through which I saw the light Silence - to feel; and to feel so weak, Silence, I think I heard her speak. The Me within, in silence too. personification of silence. this is beautiful. such personification can come only from a poetic heart. thank you dear poetess. dev

Very nice poem. Enjoyed reading it but got confused in the 5th Stanza (last line) - Vain and slain, together abridged. You are referring to Silence and what? There is much power in silence.
