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.

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!

Your kindness is much appreciated. I lift my glass to you.
I wish we all had this wordless place, very near to us, so that we could often visit.They are so very necessary for a lost and wandering hopeless soul sometimes :)

Thankyou for sharing this magnificent piece, your piece is an inspiration!
I've always thought of writing on the same topic, but I wasn't successful yet :) I'm glad I found yours!

Happy writing!

Thank you. If I find it I'll send a map. I'm pretty sure gps doesn't reach there.
Sounds heavenly! And I like the poem too, with its evocative words and gentle rhythm.
