The musician articulates his thoughts, -
Through the rhythmic cadence of his
The painter speaks through his brush, -
Blending hues of silver and gold!
The poet communicates through his
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!
