Silence Is The Entrance.... - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

Below the water surface
I put down my foundations
to build a house
with a tiny room
I can work, is never disturbed

Below the water surface
I see my inside
peculiar, the doors are mirror
I see myself knocking on the door

Below the water surface
I have just lost my way
suddenly there is a door open
the main gate of my soul

Below the water surface
I see my inside
silence is the absolute must
to the main gate to open,
the mirrors to remove
and so I see myself go inside

Nice to be there
nice to be in place to
Heaven in order to remain
in the interior, in this huge silence
have you met me, you raise me
with your love...

Silence is the Entrance
to the deepest me....

    So hard to find and know a soul who dwells in silence, the paths so treacherous and wild, but the heart that dwells in silence is surely a true heart to keep - if one can ever find it! (Report)Reply

    Sylvia Frances Chan(9/28/2019 7:37:00 AM)

    However, we always try to find that, IF we not try, how can we know that we´ll get or not?
    Have a TRY with being all alone, truly being alone, then you surely will know that your heart dwells in silence. Thank you for your honest and best response, dear poet.

    Nice to be there/nice to be in place to/Heaven in order to remain/in the interior, in this huge silence....great speculation! Indeed a poet can explore silence by transporting his/her soul even to the bottom of the sea! This great poem indeed needs a few layers of in depth analysis! I will revisit this wonderful poem once again in my spare time! (Report)Reply

    There is error on this poem site of PH, especially on mine. I can read the comments directly,
    but when I will thank the poets here, my response is not visible for at least a couple of hours.
    But I can check them, and that costs many many hours to wait for the result. This time that is the only way.

    Sylvia Frances Chan(9/28/2019 7:41:00 AM)

    Thank you for your amazing and well meant comments and compliments, dear Mrs. Juan-Austin.
    You are among the few who give oft well thought out responses. I thank you deeply for these precious words. I have much respect for your detailed response. God´s Blessings for thee.

    Silence is a gateway to one's soul and I believe it is one of the most powerful mediums through which one can comprehend the 'inner' message sent to us by the supreme being. You have given life to the language of silence in your poem. Your 'Silence' is truly 'golden'. (Report)Reply

    Silence is the door.....
    The home too,
    It is door and the guest,
    The host and guest,
    The action and doer,
    And non-doer.
    Silence is the seed,
    The sprout and tree,
    The space within space...
