Noise In Hues

Noise In Hues

A Poem by Asante.

Pink morning clouds
sweep the night away,
an infant breeze
holding off the gale
of instant life.

Transparency,
peace --
two things
I can only be
between fleeting glimmers of quiet.

And so the daylight
is a noose to silence
'til the rope loosens
as a sun dies
where the moon rises.

Very fitting I say. Another perfectly crafted piece. I love the use of colors and the soft attributes you chose to describe this scenery. You captured the shift from day to night and the feelings it conjures very well.
I can relate to the middle part of your poem, and I also find it almost astounding how you managed to express, to realize this motion just with your words.
The night seems to be a comforting time for you, as it is for me too, also the most creative (mainly) in my case. This reminds me of a quote: 'Night is purer than day. It is better for thinking, and loving, and dreaming. At night everything is more intense, more true. The echo of words that have been spoken during the day takes on a new and deeper meaning" Elie Wiesel, Dawn.
Your poem also makes my mind go back to a picture I took about 5 years ago in Paris. We arrived at dawn and the sky was pink, the pink hues reflecting on the Seine. An almost surreal shot. One of my nicest memories.
Take care, talent ;)

A lovely poem that I can relate to. Sometimes the quiet of your room is the most peace you get all day. I loved the use of pink also. ☺️

As you said. It's very fitting. I like how you used the colour of the font to capture the innocent vibe of theis poem.
I agree that peace is hard to find and is mostly found in the most uncommon places/.,
Well Done!

Last stanza...sweet! I agree noise certainly has a palette, variable energy if you will!
I enjoy the late hours it's still and Curtis is peaceful! I usually write most of my songs or arrange music then too. Great piece bro! R xo

A noose to silence...
I really like that.
There are different shades of noise but I personally love quiet solitude. I love the night. Everyone sleeps, all is quiet and calm and no one is fighting, screaming or yelling. (Unless they sleep talk) :)

My pleasure. :)
The sounds of birds waking the pink of sunrise to their lullaby for the deep red of sunset followed by the silent blue gold of moonlight.
These are the images created in my mind after reading your poem and considering the title .
Most enjoyable and evocative .

You drew some excellent images from this, Norman. Blessings, and thanks for stopping by.
The transition of morning to night... For some reason, I'm always captivated by a simple concept written deeper in a piece of literature. This poem seems to portray night as the bringer of peace and silence, which is relatable because most people contemplate when the sun slumbers. However, in the morning, everyone is more busy and hardly have the time to stop and relax. The night and morning bring out different ambiances and with that, a new type of life. Thank you for sharing this!

The morning is a beautiful time, but also dreadful if you have a lot to do that day. We wish to rush to bed, only to wake up and do it all over again. Great work Sante :)
