Beyond the white flowers Sound is a mystery

Noiseless in an empty sunset

Speechless in a diamond sky

A silent echo in a mute storm

A quiet fantasy


Beyond the white flowers Sound dances

Songs move in dusty oceans

Melodies breathe in splintered notes

Clouds drift in voiceless shadows

Unheard dreams swirl in faded mist


Beyond the white flowers the universe is deaf

  1. I love it! Reminds me of a post I only had set to public for a few hours yesterday (did you happen by chance to read it?) and one of my favorite poems by my favorite deceased female poet (I suppose you could be considered my favorite living female poet), Elizabeth Barret Browning.

    The talk of lack of sound in your poem reminds me of the line “And let us hear no sound of human strife” and the idea of heaven from E.B.B.’s poem, and the peaceful, beautiful silent mysteriousness of a dream I had 6 years ago, that was the focus of the post I took down yesterday, which the poem by E.B.B. reminds me so much of as well, thus it being one of my favorites by her.

    Here is the Browning poem I was speaking of –

    “Sonnet 24 – Let the world’s sharpness, like a clasping knife”
    by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

    Let the world’s sharpness, like a clasping knife,
    Shut in upon itself and do no harm
    In this close hand of Love, now soft and warm,
    And let us hear no sound of human strife
    After the click of the shutting. Life to life—
    I lean upon thee, Dear, without alarm,
    And feel as safe as guarded by a charm
    Against the stab of worldlings, who if rife
    Are weak to injure. Very whitely still
    The lilies of our lives may reassure
    Their blossoms from their roots, accessible
    Alone to heavenly dews that drop not fewer,
    Growing straight, out of man’s reach, on the hill.
    God only, who made us rich, can make us poor.

  2. You have amazing writing let me tell you. The style that you write in is very plain… but there’s so much imagery behind it, i will definitely start writing poems. I think if I wrote it about love like my other stories it would be really nice! Your stories are fantastic and I will definitely come back to read them!

      1. The words you use, the phrasing! They’re really simple, but pack so much inside it, which I think makes the poem really stand out. You’re taught to write poems with rhymes, meter, etc, but you don’t do that and it’s really good.
