Silence - Poem by Rosmin Elsa Mohan

I once dreamt of an open field,
The bareness of which alone did shield,
A shadow so frail, in a shadow as such
Silence.
I thought as much.

I felt it again on my bed at night
Darkness; through which I saw the light
Silence - to feel; and to feel so weak,
Silence, I think I heard her speak.

The crowd through which I made my way,
Gave me a second to poise it through
Shouts around, though I felt them nay,
The Me within, in silence too.

The hours of solace so gifted in tune,
A language unworldly, (beyond the moon!)
To realize it though, you need the frame,
Simple at first, ’ Patience’ the name.

Foes though come, are conquered all.
In her skin, she does stand tall,
Naïve it is, but more a bridge
Vain and slain, together abridged.

As every dawn turns the key,
Feel her true for a minute or two:
The price of it, without much ado,
Reflects around in the eyes you see!

    Very nice poem. Enjoyed reading it but got confused in the 5th Stanza (last line) - Vain and slain, together abridged. You are referring to Silence and what? There is much power in silence. (Report) Reply

    The rhythm of this imagery poem is felt in every stanza. Good use of rhymes and euphemisms.
    Thank you for sharing

    Words gifted with stature...
    The crowd through which I made my way,
    Gave me a second to poise it through
    Shouts around, though I felt them nay,
    The Me within, in silence too. (Report) Reply

    When we light up the lamp of soul, When we need a shadow of solace, When we hear the whisper of soulSilence poured to our heart's sky))))))) Silence is palpableSilence is pleasurableSilence is like the glide of a feather in a gentle breezeSilence is like the melting of snow in a valleySilence is like the smoulder of embers into ash((((It's a great poem, I like it like a melodious song))))) Top marks! ! ! ! ! !
