Just Quietness

Just Quietness

A Poem by Aurora
"

Sometimes, we just have nothing to say. This poem was completely an experiment and I'm happy with the outcome. It's away from the regular melancholy, however still a blend of the present.

"

Just Quietness; No offence!


Let the water ripple below you,

Let the clouds just float without thunder,

Let birds rest in their nests,

And look at the world with sonder.


Feel the throb of your chest,

Feel the surging blood dribble,

Feel you heart beating in rhythm,

And close your eyes, be Quiet!


Patrick Mason: Shhhhh - MysteriousGrandma - Wattpad


 Shhhhhh..... !



Just be quiet and think in between the quietness

Aren’t other noises screaming within you?

Just you being quiet, brings the profound stillness,

Probably a breeze on your deserted tongue.


Silence

 

Leave me in my stillness and quietness

I too want to grieve on the thought of being quiet.

No offence! I don’t blame you; it’s quite difficult to tell,

Sometimes we just have nothing to say.



Sometimes others too have nothing to say

But just being close cuts through into the silence.

Sometimes forgetting they too have nothing to speak,

Just for a desire for some quietness, and it’s no offence.

 

Sometimes silence speaks more than words can say

Sometimes they don’t have real words to speak.

And we say more than it can ever tolerate

Hence breaking someone’s comfort is quite an offence.

Just be quiet once more for the dead to rest in peace,

Quiet to see their pale faces in their casket.

Quiet to smell the flowers wrapping the degrading ambience

And to stop the tears to flow anymore.

 

I’m not grieving at the death as I say,

But on my own lifelessness and inconvenience.

I’m quiet because I’m tired of the noise,

And an incredible desire of nothing to say.

 

Just be quiet for one more time,

Quiet till the night sleeps and mornings wake.

Quiet till the dusk wants to let me say,

And break the wall against an inside quake.

 The world is getting noisier, and it's affecting our health. How ...

 Shhhhhh..... !

Author's Note

Aurora
It's a poem because of the quietness that made me think about it. Inspiration are mixture of "Keeping Quiet" by Pablo Neruda, Jack's complement on my 4-lined stanza that he says looks quite professional, a large pinch out of my situation and a little pinch of argument that I had and lots of realization and soothing words of people who still seem to care in their own ways. Just Silence.
I'd like a review if you enjoy. Any suggestion, objection, questions, criticism is most welcomed.
Thank You!

Silence for me > The swish of tyres on a smooth surface > gives way to the crunch of gravel > silence over the grass track
A view down the valley from the highest point; way about the hum of traffic - see in the distant the glint of sun on traffic heading for the seaside > The view over the mountain tops rolling hill after hill as far as the eye can see > sounds of birds singing

Quietness in a world that is full of noise, hustle and bustle can be a blessing. We should all take a few moments out, at least every day to quietly reflect, take in nature. A spot of meditation won't hurt anyone.

Hey you know, Im going to release some audio versions of my poem. I'll send you the links. 😊
I love this poem, I love the concept of embracing quietness, as you know. I always enjoy the longer poems & many times I wish the shorter ones were longer. But I feel this poem is too long for the message. When you want to write a poem about quietness, challenge yourself & try to make it very concise. Try to do what you are asking your reader to do . . . otherwise, this is a one-sided conversation where you're telling us to shut up while you go on & on & on. This is just one way of looking at it. Not a judgment, but just a contrasting approach. I have been admiring writers at the cafe who can do that (I'm not good at it, either) -- saying something quickly, quietly, & then shut myself up! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

Interesting poem, I believe some of your phrases take inspiration from more than one artist. It's almost as if you were saying "live" and enjoy the moment of living. I would like to say more, but my computer is having issues at the moment. Hopefully, you will continue to be inspired. Until then, I'll be reading.

This could be the lockdown anthem.
The birds are singing, nature is doing what nature does best. Humans for once are forced to listen, might do us good in the long run.

Years ago. I roamed highway one in California. Talked to no-one and sat with the sea and the free-land of Big Sur. I sought the silence and gathered my mind. I enjoyed this poem dear Aurora. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

I love your work dear Aurora and you are welcome.
too many people talk without saying a lot, and are afraid of that silence, just to sit in empty silence, sometimes even the noise in the head abates for a while,, I enjoyed the flow in this, Aurora

Thank You for the review... that's true! There's more to come. Stay tuned!
Silence.


It's me who,                               
Being haunted by;
Your welcome silence,
Silence simulates smile,
But it postulates the pain,
The pain dies though,
I'm still living in truth,
I assail the weakness,
But it's enslaved me,
No escape, no flee-
I'm not prisoner,
Yet an imprisoned man,
Who died several times,
Still he is alive as stone,
Unbeatable and invincible,
For the pledge that vowed,
In the face of loyalty,
Genuine, truthfulness,
And I do understand,
The heart is fragile,
Sometime it fears,
Of losing the beauty that;
We created for,
Nurtured for,
An everlasting will,
Yet the path might be broken,
It's curable and fixable,
As saying goes,
"Where there is hope,
There is a way",
It may not be very concerned,
The hope does exist,
The way could be found,
Through wistful desire to be,
The milestone in the day to come.
