Silence

Silence

Peacefully quiet.

Shy morning in the world still asleep,
brave night under the sky with stars,
afternoon in the oasis of summer, when nothing moves.

Very deep end of a forest,
highest pick of a mountain,
surface of a frozen sea.

Heart so silent, nearly emotionless,
feelings now healed, safely locked in a box,
words gone on a trip to North pole.

Just one rebel, the hope for something new,
restless and insomniac, in need to escape,
scared to break the silence, waiting for the right time and place.

    Blaga, this is a very nice poem. You can find silence in lots of places. Great imagery.

  2. Cherlyn Says:

    Great poem!! I love how you use imagery in your poems, it’s something I’ve never been able to quite grasp in my own – something to strive for I suppose! To me this envoked a feeling of peace and hope; sometimes silence can be so filled with tension and grief, but it can also just be a calm, perfect moment of happiness. Great poem! Have a great weekend!

    Wow, I love the imagery, and there are certain lines that really stand out. Amazing poem!

    “Heart so silent, nearly emotionless,
    feelings now healed, safely locked in a box,
    words gone on a trip to North pole.”

    Loved those lines the most :)

    Yep, i like it too.
    Who’d have thought silence could prompt so much activity.
    Great words

    Hushed… in my softest whisper and lowest undertone,
    may I say, “That was sweetly and completely quieting.”

    This is fabulous! loved the last stanza too much.

  9. RJ Clarken Says:

    I absolutely love your last stanza, about the rebel, hoping for something new and being afraid to break the silence. It just speaks volumes.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Loved this poem of yours. “shy morning,” “brave night,” “words gone on a trip to the North Pole”–loved these descriptions!

    First, thanks for your kind comment on my little poem about my house.

    This is a lovely poem, soft and strong at once. I agree with the others about your concrete images. My poetry teacher has taught me that readers like to SEE what they are reading, and you have done a wonderful job here.

    I love the image of the locked box. I lost my husband a year and a half ago, and I have not yet been able to heal and lock all that sadness away.

    Thanks for a great poem……….cj

    brilliant…

  15. Christopher Raley Says:

    Blaga,
    I really like the imagery in this. And I like how the poem steps out side the theme a little with the “one last rebel”. There’s something of me in that.

    I totally enjoyed this one. Additionally I cherish silence, thus it is a nicely written ode to one of most favorite things. I JUST LOVE IT!

    Nicely done, hope you are having an awesome weekend :)

    Silence..? Void..? Vacuum..?
    Initially you may feel very quite, eventually you’ll long for it once you learn to live with it.. It’s very re- assuring to create a world where not many things change.. A self created void is one such place!
    Yes, hearts do heal..

    Love xx

    This is entirely wonderful. I do think I like the last stanza best. It is reverberating in my mind. Sticks, like a good meal, if you know what I mean.

    Great photo too – as always – and just another perfect post.

    Thanks! ;-)
