** Communication!

COMMUNICATION!

The musician articulates his thoughts, -
Through the rhythmic cadence of his
notes.
The painter speaks through his brush, -
Blending hues of silver and gold!
The poet communicates through his
verse, -
Using varied patterned rhymes!
The potter through his revolving wheel, -
Which keeps circling till end of time!
While we humans communicate, -
With ceaseless babble of our words;
Words that communicate for the better, -
Or sometimes even for the worse!
The clocks communicate with its ticking,
And with its hourly swaying chimes;
Its heart beats in a silent mode, - speaking
till the end of time!
But only God communicates in absolute
silence - when all is still;
When the noisy world falls asleep, -
And darkness settles upon the deep!
Then silence becomes fully eloquent, -
While He speaks to us in our sleep!

Good communicative poem… it is true, in many ways, we are communicating in different manners, even simple silence and frown conveys… gestures proclaims! hehe ;)
The painter speaks through his brush, - Blending hues of silver and gold! The poet communicates through his verse, - all are gifted with some talents to communiate the views... eveybody deoes thinking that he conveys the message of his beloved God and why not it is gift fromthe almighty to convey what he has understood it...so nice write....10
A very philosophical view and a deep insight of the world and of SILENCE itself as a means of communication/ Your poem echoes mine; The Mystery of Silence'. Good write!
vow! eloquent and poetic. conveys a great lot of meanings and philosophy. wonderful voted 10 regards surya
Though we can't 'see' God, we seem to 'hear' him in our sleep! ! Such poetic licence, Rajda....! ! And yet, each poet expresses life as he/she wants to...just as you've done. I'm fascinated by your interpretation as given in your poem.... Keep communicating, Rajda, keep communicating.... Cheers. Subroto
