Musing – Silence

I feel silence is the most underrated emotion... What is a song without the usual pauses, silence is impactful, it's intriguing...

Silence in colors is grey
Neither it's lighter black nor darker white;
Yet the language of void
The sound of a vacuum?

How silent is silence
It's too tricky to assume!
What is form without shadows
Silence is the shadow of words
Present ever,
Yet the underdog between us!

Silence - is it true,
Or it's the absence of noise?
Or is silence the highest form of sound
That vibrates in a frequency...

An eerie silence, or alluring symphony
That sends down chills down our spine;
The license to decipher
A language to feel

In silence,
I close the door of doubt,
Silence where I feel the presence of divine!

  1. Wow Aishwarya, actually my blog is about Melodies of Physics, it’s journey started with one question what’s Music without Ears?

    Silence, is that in realm, has got any emotion!! Silence is for external inside there lots of bigger voice, people have this…. But I think there’s more than saying verbally, you know there is something we say without actually saying through eyes, through gestures etc…
    Just a thought.. I shared.

    1. Wow… That’s a great observation.
      My take on silence is it is the only language of the universe. Quite a paradox that silence is filled with noise. There is sound everywhere, there is music everywhere but maybe we cannot hear but sense it as every creature including humans is limited to a range of decibels.
      That is the beauty of silence, just as the nonverbal language of eyes that too speaks a lot yet needs a human who are not prejudiced to listen to it.
