To crown it all there is an inner silence.
The Glow Of Silence

She sings the sweetest of melodies.
Yet exists surrounded by silence.
The calming peace of her hills and dales
recharges my sense of happiness.

The trees, the creepers, the lush green meadow,
the many colored flowers, to perfection grow,
their song of silence fills me with a thrill.
Why then is human life frantic and shrill?

Look at the strings of stars adorning the night sky!
Their scintillating symphony can make anyone fly
to invisible regions, and unknown destinations,
where one can discover visions of illumination.

In silence, I find a balm to the wounded soul,
a beneficent means to achieve many a goal.
The best for me is to practice rising above the din,
and let the mind relax seeping in the calm within.
