Silent Diction

Can you see the joy that peeps out

Of the brightness of eyes, perceiving ecstasy all about?

For the best of joys is far too deep,

To come within shallow words’ grip.


Can you hear the echo of untold misery

That retreats from sad lips, shut despondently?

For, the great pain is too bitter,

For the subtle words to endure.


Seeing in, out and around, we discover

That in order to communicate, words, all can’t shower.

So, may we learn the Silent Diction, not aye relying on words, fragile,

To know, to understand more and to make life more worthwhile.

If we look at body language alone we can learn volumes. Sometimes words are not necessary, sometimes they're not enough. You have expressed the sound of silence well, beautifully in fact.

What you wrote is so true. The moments of silence between good friends are comforting. "Silent Diction" is an excellent title for your poem about what sometimes needs only to be felt and not spoken.

Lorna Lamon on April 22, 2021:

Such a lovely poem full of wisdom. Silence has a language all of its own which speaks volumes. Thank you for sharing.

Misbah from The Planet Earth on April 22, 2021:

Yes, Vanita, silence in my opinion is the loudest language. If anyone ever can hear it. I believe everyone in life is passing through storms and thunders as you said some people are just good at hiding

Thanks for this beautiful piece. I loved it

Blessings and Love
