The Beauty of Silence

This poem is how I feel when I am busy working on something that requires thought and just want to enjoy the quiet without meaningless chatter!

Dedications

I must dedicate this poem to Delicia Powers who inspired me to think about how much I value silence. I also want to dedicate this to Loverme who has inspired me to write a non rhyming poem. Here goes!

Video of me reciting this poem on youtube

There is beauty in the unspoken word!

Within it there is power more profound

then the meaningless conversational fluff

that fills in the spaces of my precious silence

with nervous intrusive mindless thoughts

best kept unsaid!

Filling the conversational gaps with chatter

Do you feel that if there is a lull in the conversation

it must be filled with mindless utterances?

Many times friends and lovers can appreciate each other

more in the silence of the unspoken word!

Snow Pines

For I am a lover of the silent peacefulness of the falling snow

Or the quiet rain drops softly falling on my window pane

Or the happy chirping of the busy birds

Or the sound of the gentle breeze caressing the trees

Enjoy the sound of silence

Or at times just plain silence!

Yes all these sounds, sights and smells make mere utterances

of the human language seem shallow, intrusive and vain!

Please just enjoy the quiet with me!

Love how you were inspired by other Wikinut writers! I miss the city but find great joy on going for a walk down to the lake near my house and sitting there in silence.

Beautifully said Judy. We should not open our mouths unless we have something worthwhile to say. Of course, there are exceptions like when we have to eat! Yes, family can have quality time too in silence. Silence is golden! siva

you are a born silent star
not from us very far
but distinct in the sky
and you know why...
the whole world reads you and they give a star to you even for your maiden off beat my style poem
for me they haven't considered yet
what star oh loverme
you have composed only 700 poetry!

Wow! You all are so very generous in your comments but I did make some mistakes as to where I accentuated certain phrases in my reading of this poem! I probably will redo it! However, with such loving and kind fans I can't go wrong! Love and my best to all of you!!

you may delete it from here
if you wish ...
though you are the INSPIRATIONAL soul
behind this Judy

Star Pressure! Love you!!

What of stars you say
I live from stars miles away
they don’t enamor me no more
and they know I ain’t worried that’s for sure.

the feelings twinkling stars give to me
no human can equal the starry galaxy
as we only claim
that we alone can award
what of stars!

I don’t care for a sword.

You gave the idea of such acclaim,
I took it seriously and now disclaim
what of paper stars and cents we speak,

I am not bothered at the least

now I have 3000 stars
read my word daily,
should I be bothered really?

or ask for the moon

Life is a simple struggle
so let’s live it wholly
as we are glad to be one with Wiki

am not angry for not having earned a star
no, not a bit
well I’m not so far!
