-Colored Words-

dean langmuir


TO hear how silence and

THE empty speak

COLOR this language all your own



THEIR loud,but you cannot hear

WORDS of no sound,they play

WITHIN the inner-inner ear



YOUR spaces you can sing

SILENT hymns that chorus

PLACES life begins

    In this age, the beauty of silence seems to be lost in the pollution of noise. We don't seem to understand that it is a natural condition, and we should nurture it for our own well mental being. You have captured this so well, a lovely poem that is taken to heart.

            An excellent and clever poem! One worth emulating, at some stage. Almost Sator squarish in design. Thanks for sharing. /Rik.

                And you have successfully written a poem of such features. It is quite difficult to get meaning and beauty on such types without forcing language. So an overall achievement by such merits. Poet on, indeed!
