Wordless

Wordless

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

Carry me to a wordless world...

"
















Carry me to a wordless world

On rippling currents of incandescence

Where music blossoms agelessly

Pulsing peace in every note

Upon the ocean’s cresting wildness

Rising on transcendent sunfire

Azure waters and azure waves

A thousand, thousand years of water

Let me rest in the ambiance of you

Luminous atmosphere of angels

There above that steep, rocky ridge

Reminiscing of a world ineffable

Inexpressible in wonder

Forever wordless.

Author's Note

An owl on the moon
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
― Rumi

Every line in this poem is so gentle, so endlessly lulling...you have crafted a beautiful world,
where the air would be rich with the sound of music, and the waves like molten gold under the brilliant sunshine. I take that by wordless you mean free from all arguments, and talks of war...a world as tranquil as a song...
"Upon the ocean’s cresting wildness
Rising on transcendent sunfire," are my favourite lines from here.

Why would one want a wordless world,
when gifted as are you.
Those thousand words spread down the page,
conveyed in just a few.

Sometimes a random thought is all you need,

I love your message, which goes perfectly with the artwork you selected, & the Rumi quote -- a well-thought-out collection of artistic ideas! I love the way your words reflect wordlessness by showing how various natural phenomena can convey volumes without words. Your word choices are very graceful like the scene you are painting (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

So lovely. A place where tranquility resides!
Oh, and did I tell you before how much I love Rumi? You've really got a great collection o his quotes. And after reading your lyrical words, Rumi's words work as Icing on the cake.
Keep up the great work. :)

Many thanks my friend!
As if I could hear the waves coming in on the sandy beach, I read holding each breath, waiting for the gentle approach of the next line to crash into me. Lovely, delicate words. May I join you in this wordless world?

Ah, dear poet, you are always welcome in my wordless world. Thank you for coming!
Inspiring! I mostly write with rhyme, but your beautiful work carries me away. I would like to have that affect on others through words also. Beautiful, almost, Wordless!

Firstly, I was attracted to your profile picture because I adore owls; they remind me of my mother. "Wordless" is an experience we've all shared. I often do not know what to say when I'm extremely upset or angry. We all react in different ways whether we shut down or throw a tantrum. We choose how we react.

I love the softness; the imagery relaxes the reader into an escape. We all need that from time to time. I think that its human nature to constantly be in a rush. At work, your pace is never fast enough. There is always a speed higher. I find solace in your words; there is music there.

Thank you for sharing!
