My Silent Rendering, My Timeless Tribute

My Silent Rendering, My Timeless Tribute
My Silent Rendering, My Timeless Tribute

My tribute to writing…

Silence is my friend,
the tapping of keys a crescendo
against that monotonous buzzing of nothingness,
and I delve into thoughts so freely exposed,
when silence open paths unopposed to my inquiry,
for within the quietude of life’s pause,
the stillness has no delusions to offer.

Here, words hover like birds circling prey,
awaiting that trans-formative moment of death,
and in that life arises a strength within,
finding place within that cycle;
and so words given strength find place,
upon the canvas of emptiness,
to become life itself.

There is no time in this stream,
no ticking deadline or dream,
just a vast and open space for thought to grace a page,
and between nature’s breath, of infinite breadth,
words transcend thoughts,
find beauty where nothingness aches
for purpose.

Here is my sanctum, my refuge from life,
where life itself is grown from thought,
and words amend what aught to be in time,
I relish the beauty placed in front of me,
and me to glean its essence, as I tap away,
my heartbeats mark my fading, yet I am aiding
my thoughts of longevity.

    How beautifully you describe your sanctum in the silence, Tony. I tried to be very quiet as I tip-toed in and out of this box to comment. Lovely verse and well done.

    Silence is a place of peace, an escape from all the madness going on in this world. Silence, a place where we can put down our thoughts in a world of our own. Great write.
