One Silent Word

He speaks with measured dignity,
one silent word at a time
His palmetto pen tells us: 
Tune out the cosmic background noise,
and focus your mind
on the sound of the silent voice
You most certainly will hear this ...
... did you hear it?
Oh, perhaps you got distracted by the sounds of emptiness
His message in a void
comes with clear poetic instructions: 
Avoid all unnecessary malaise ... cap the chaotic noise
Have a willingness to learn 
one silent word at a time
This will teach us how to unclutter our mind 
Using poetic telepathy,
his priceless pen brings that silent word
to the surface of our consciousness 
Not every sound we hear in this world do we need
The Silent One says: 
take it one silent word at a time
True understanding comes
when we allow expansion of the heart
Enlarging our capacity to transmit love,
allows us to hear 
the best unspoken words we never heard of
One silent word ...
when spoken at the right moment of time
can be so life-changing sublime
Poetic telepathy ... gives us the ability 
	to understand every unspoken word 
written between the lines
One silent word 
to another unspoken word ... 
Pure poetic telepathy in our mind 
Enlarging our capacity to receive love,
allows us to speak 
the best unspoken words we never spoke of
Where his silent pen stroke stops — 
at the sacred melding of two minds ...
let these silent words
be spoken in unison, always at the same time

This is a tribute to my talented poet friend, Silent One

Oh!...:( did not know SO left! He's been one big encouragement to me when I joined PS. Indeed a great tribute from you to him which he deserves. But man is free to move as he likes in this vast world of God and which is after all so small. We always come across somewhere..:) Regards Sunita UPD

The serenity of the words spoken and the sincere words in the mind establish by what written stoke in pen. The heart and mind combine with the deep thoughts. The words need to establish to polish the intention of the heart to connect and unite to someone with deep understanding and acceptance. To reach out and to resolve the matter of the spoken words through the heart. You have a beautiful spirit.

A magnum of elements contained in this tribute to your poet friend. The mystical instruction drives the poem and skims a vast ocean of poetic creatures that can be engaged with at different depths of existence for the poet on a voyage of discovery. The media of pen to paper here has taken the written word to a new level of form, it seems, where poetry is not a vice with a useless purpose, but a treasure with gifts for the poet and reader alike. Love this work.

I wish to thank everyone here at PSoup for your loving words. I admire Silent One's poetic prowess, his immense talent of mixing the intellectual content so seamlessly w/the emotional elements of his stellar poetry. He indeed will be missed, but hopefully will return to us, of course in good health. Much love and respect to my PSoup family. Romantic Warrior
