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.

Tis said that silence is golde; it is. Emptying the mind, focussing on... a flower, a pebble - something you need to see. Letting it slowly, slowly fade . so that in fading there's nothing but nothing.. calm as calm can be. Silence.

Beautiful and inspiring words, Owl.

Great poetry. Isn't it ironic how people always want to be heard, or hear what is the latest piece of information, but in the end, we find peace when those words remain absent :) Love your quote about Rumi too......I tried to find that field recently on the roads Rumi walked....did not quite find it. Who knows, maybe it is only a place our words can describe, but our bodies may never be able to go there.....:)

nice job! "Wordless" puts me there in that field .. a place one doesn't really need that "other" to be there .. but it adds such a quiet tone of romance and health ... i think "azure" is well used in writing but it doesn't seem to matter as the rest of your images inspired and i thoroughly enjoy the closing ... i am an introvert and so "Forever wordless" is a fine place of peace ;)

I'm left imagining how a wordless world would feel like. Maybe that's why we're so far from finding the true meaning of peace... the ripples of words in the sea of silence are sometimes too much to bear perhaps...
Lovely piece, Craig.

Sounds like a beautiful place to relax and enjoy ones thoughts. A different world of "ones" own creating.
