Silence In You

Is there a way you can show me your silence? This world is deafening to me Can I find the words that I'm seeking.. Dream of a quiet place with only you speaking Teach me to hear with my other senses draw down all these distorted fences Want to listen through the day with you the whole day in a quiet song of you just of you learn from your solitude I want to., now and forever know what it is to feel through only those few the touch of your hand replace the fragments of a symphonic band Invite me to your silent world show me the other side of sound a place where tranquil peace is found.
~~ Dedicated to a great world poet and friend Demetrios Trifiatis ~~

"Elo Quothy, this very fine poem reminds me of the picture "The Creation of Adam" were their fingers reach out to touch, once touched the connection is there with no words spoken, but, then all at once understood, a lovely tribute to Demetrios who I am sure will be more than honoured by your poem, and a well deserved POTD . . . : )

A place and person that is seldom found in todays selfish, crazy state of survival of the fittest. However, I do agree with what you so aptly and creatively are putting across to us - pure bliss to discover persons who can invite you into their serene world a place where tranquility reigns. Superb write my friend. A greatly deserved POTD, a real gem Richard. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Silence is golden, in so many amazing ways. Emotions have a way of telling a story, no words are needed. I am lingering in your peace. Such a beautiful dedication to Demetrios. Congratulations Richard, on Poem of the Day. :) Brandy

'The world is deafening to me' -- wonderful line, Richard. With each passing year, I am aware of more and more noise that I successfully, so far, have been able to shut out. Silence is golden. Some say that it is a fence to (surrounding) wisdom. Congrats on POTD. Peace be with you, Gershon

Beautifully written from the heart! It is so true that "the world is deafening". There are times I crave silence and solitude as much as I crave chocolate. Congrats on your POTD honor, Richard! Blessings, Kim M
