A SPEECHLESS DAY

Imagine Twenty-four hours of pure silence Time devoid of human speech and sound When a word is not uttered A day in the world of profound dumbness The tongue, the teeth and lips Observe a break of twenty-fours hours The ears hear The rhythm of the air, water and fire And enjoy the lyrics of the birds With the rhythmical dance of the trees and plants Gossips, rumors and curses took flight Deceit lies and tongue wagging expelled Splits and spits of the tongues avoided World’s day of quietude and tranquility A day of inner communication When the deep calls to the deep And people transits the limits of spoken words Into perceptions and intuitions Birthing profound thoughts and ideas As each make contact with the inner person Imagine A day without speech How beautiful, how priceless! Oh! How I long for that day!!
