Silence


When I whispered,
Silence speaks the language of my soul
Someone said,
What a contrast?
He questioned,
Does silence have a sound?

How could I reveal the secret of silence?
My restless mind always sought its refuge
Reviving my dull spirit,
I enjoyed its subtle beauty
While communing with my self

Silence was my best friend
The goodness and courage it radiates,
From a calm, composed and contemplative spirit
Was its best gift to mankind

Not jarred by the noise of the turbulent world
Its power was like the unseen wind,
Its stillness fell on my mind as a soothing balm…

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
