Silent Presence - Poem by Freni Karaluthara

In my silent chat with
flowers plants and trees.
In my lonely wanderings
in silent valleys and atop hills;
Thou! O’ Silent Presence, follow me.
Lillies, roses and jasmins fill “Your Thoughts”
in their silent speech.
Why I love flowers, plants, trees,
and mountains you know?
In their silence i sense His presence.
In cemeteries and Libraries,
in their silence, I’m in bliss,
with the dead and living dead.
The sweetest sights of all time for me
are images in the mirrors.
They roar and shout,
in their silent voices.
Statues of every kind and
arts are pleasing sights for me.
The dwelling of my God is
there in all these, in the-
“Muteness” of this world.

    Silent Presence.
    The title of the poem drew me in to read it. I love how the poet sees his God in everything within the human world and how in the stillness of life he feels the presence of his God, seeing God as a living presence in all things. I love how the poet says 'Why I love flowers, plants, trees, and mountains you know'? This acknowledges that God knows everything about each of His beloved children and it is a very comforting thought that God is always on the lookout for all of us. A very finely crafted spiritual poem, with beautiful visual detail. I enjoyed reading very much and thank you for sharing, dear poet... (Report) Reply

    O’ Silent Presence, follow me.
    In their silence i sense His presence.
    in their silence, I’m in bliss,
    The dwelling of my God is
    there in all these, .... You are a great 'God_poet, a divine one. that is the beauty of your poems. it is a sense that grows in you as you opt for silence evermore. Go on and be in silence. it is a marvellous experience and it will make out of you a great divine poet. meditate, think, write and smile as you write. God bless you. tony
