Void

When silences speak for the void in between,
Sound loses its worth,
Presence, absence, today or tomorrow,
Incompetent they become…..

ख़ामोशी जब बयान करती है शून्य को कभी,
आवाज़ खो देती है अपना आयाम,
होना, ना होना, आज, कल,
अक्षम हो जाते हैं सब……

    1. Wow. Thank you so much Cindy. Sometimes silence really doesn’t matter when you know what the truth in its entirety is. We may understand it maybe much later. Sometimes it’s better not to speak as you already know the consequences. Thank you Cindy. 🥰

      1. You are so welcome Kumar. You are so right and it was so succinctly said!.. While I might know how to communicate with people as you say. I use too many words and yours were direct and to the point. You are most welcome! 🤗

      A poem submitted by SoundEagle as an appreciation of, and a collaboration with Kumar Harsh:

      When the void speaks for silences in between,
      Space loses its girth,
      Fullness, emptiness, present or future,
      Inconsequent they become…..

      1. This is amazing Ro. Loved the way you have used space to define many things. A troubled mind may be in a place that can be devastating for it, desperate to get out, it generally closes its doors. Loved this. 😇

      Please kindly allow me the pleasure to fix the font size and font style of my poem this time:

      2. You are so welcome! It is so lovely to have collaboration in poetry.

        Thanks for the invite but I’m managing as much as I can with working and writing etc. I will have to pass but I’m honored you are thinking of me. Great thanks it should show up to let me know.
        Take good care!

      3. When Kumar speaks for Cindy between the void and silences,
        SoundEagle🦅 loses its perch,
        And flies away to music,
        The fluttering of his wings…
        Gleams and shimmers on SoundCloud💨,
        Alighted with New Sensations…..

        Come and meet SoundEagle🦅 and the New Sensations at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2013/03/10/soundeagle-in-soundcloud-art-music-and-compositions-about-new-sensations-love-life-country-nature-dreaming-meditation-and-spirituality/

      5. Dear Kumar,

        I actually submitted several earlier comments containing the weblink to the post entitled “🦅 SoundEagle in SoundCloud: Art, Music and Compositions about New Sensations, Love, Life, Country, Nature, Dreaming, Meditation and Spirituality 🏞🎼”. However, since you have recently disabled the inclusion of link(s) in comments, my comments have been probably sent to the spam folder of your WordPress account. You can try to resurrect or retrieve them from your spam folder by unspamming them.

        In any case, there is a big button called “Content Listing” in the first widget on my website. This will take you to a page containing a listing of all of my posts and pages.

        Alternatively, use the widget entitled “🦅SoundEagle’s Search Engine” to search for the said post.

        Please enjoy!

  1. So many emotions in such few words! Silence does indeed hold so much power. The phrase “silence is deafening” comes to mind, upon reading this. It portrays so much without even using words. Very beautifully written, Harsh! I love it.
