Melody Of Solitude

Surging stream meanders in the carved valley Concert of murmur cascades melody on sculpted rock I place my ears on the ripples of the whistling air but the sound of music flies past me unheard. Summer rains fall in torrent on the parched tree The rhythm of aria echoes on the dancing leaves I keep my subtle senses alert in the scene but the symphony fades away unperceived. I try but can’t relate to these sounds For these are out of sync for me Dissipating in the depth of silence. From the cacophony of distraught clamor Voices return unheard to where they came from For the stark reality remains hidden unsaid In the unreachable abyss of the marooned minds. On the misty path lost in the winter wilderness Feelings freeze like sleet on the trail unwalked The buds of emotion wither away unblossomed in the forlorn frigid crevasse of the glacial hearts. I try to reach out to all these cold people But their frosted faces drift away like formless cloud Beyond the sky of silence. On the wave lashed shore of life The palace of yearning I try to build With sands of time borrowed from eternity No one comes in, it collapses in the sea of oblivion. Detached, I hear the divine melody of solitude Resonating the tune of supreme soul within me With the sound of silence. May 4, 2021 Contest : Open Poetry 4 Sponsor : Charlotte Puddyfoot
