Silence


Contemplation, searching for my soul
Silence encompassing all
Alone but not in solitude
Silence giving fortitude

My ego-thoughts trying to prop up
Silence makes them stop
Soul is what I’m searching for
Silence, silence I adore

Connecting to my soul
Silence winning after all
Thoughts connect with high above
Silence fills my soul with love

Conscience conquering my mind
Silence makes it look so kind
Soul and conscience hand in hand
Silent wish to never end

Grateful heart joins in
Silence makes it all akin
Thanking God for this silent contemplation
Thanks for silence, thanks again

    Very beautiful poem, your words touch silence like no others.
    Writing in the complete silence of contemplation my being becomes aware
    of it's stillness and peace. My soul is quiet and listening to my heart and
    mind with serenity. Also, I write in the silence of music. Thank you for
    sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Hans, this poem really speaks to me. I feel that we write our best when we are still and one with God. It's only then we able to express the things our divine nature wants to say.10+ (Report) Reply

    This has an unusual rhythm and coupled with the theme is quite original.
    I enjoyed reading this. The length was impressive also; that you were able
    to continue the style so well for that length of time (but that was good; it is
    not too long, it is just right) . (Report) Reply
