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.

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.

I thank you deeply for your thoughts, your precious time, dear poet.
I love your poem and the quote by Rumi
Love is about acceptance
and they say when you meet the one
silence befalls you
because there is something louder speaking
that is your emotions making this exchange of approval
A hand shake that never ends

Beautiful .......
