Within the Silence

This is a poem inspired by rama devi nina's poem "Ode to Emptiness".

Listen to the Silence

I seek silence in the beauty of a winter day.
Soft and white, cold and gray,
The water ripples beneath the frozen bay.

A Peaceful Soul

The ocean wide-
A blue and cloud filled sky
Is a quiet reflection upon the tide.
There in that depth, the peace of my soul resides.

Bursting With Love

Beneath a warm sun, across the golden horizon,
The view of the sea
And spring memories.
Life again blooms in tender green...
A stillness within stirs,
Filling me with a magnitude of love.


Inspired by rama devi nina and her poem Ode To Emptiness

very nice
.....Of Unwanted Negativity

You are the architect of your own mind ,
take a leap forward in the arena of time,
take charge of your self ,your mind
leave all else ,
negativity in particular
far behind...
