Silence - A wonder




Truth betrays trust
Yes, it sometimes does
Let your lips not move in grumbling
Let your mind not lose its cool
Let there be a guide

The empty chambers of Darkness
will give you warmth of wisdom
The stillness of your solitary conscience
Will help you break the prison
Let it help you look at peace

Shake hands with your self
Lose yourself, seek yourself
Silence soothes
Embrace it
Let it heal you with your own voice



– Vaishali

  10. Hi Vaishali,

    Seeing your post after a long time. :)
    Lovely poem. Indeed, only you can be your best friend, that's the best way to tackle most of life's problems. And to know yourself better, silence is the medium where you connect with that inner self. Profound post Vaishali :)

  15. Look deep into your soul
    Savor the spectacle of life
    Unspoken though it may be.
    A solitary dance towards inner peace.
    Silent, yet all too consuming.
    Overpowering the shadows
    That hides the wonder and color of your beautiful soul......

    I super love this Vaishali :) you have a gift.

    2. @vaishali: There are only a handful of people and writers I admire. You are one of them. and Kriti too... You write beautifully. Your articles and posts are cohesive, concise, straight to the point and no-nonsense. You do not write to impress people with your words. I abhor those so called ones who try to use super *wow* and recently acquired vocabulary just to impress... To be an effective writer, one only needs to be true and sensitive and empathetic to the various emotions and situations of different people. Keep writing Vaishali. I am one of your fans.... Pyar, shanti, khushi mera dost :)

    3. OMG!! I'm so glad you think so, Sheila. I like to keep things simple. Never thought someone would actually notice it.

      But there is this thing I wanted to tell you - You are no less. I am in awe after reading your blog posts. Any compliment from such a brilliant writer is always, always welcomed. :P

      Thank you so much. :)

      AND your Hindi is good. :D Indian friends? ;)
