Wisdom Speaks–dVerse Poetics


Silence is the language of god; all else is poor translation.” Rumi

Shhh! Listen to your heart

whispering

 

Light.

Travelers, it is late. Life’s sun is going to set. During these brief days that you have strength, be quick and spare no effort of your wings.

Rumi

Dance, my old friend, sing, fly.

Death is your

 

song.

Who could be so lucky? Who comes to a lake for water and sees the reflection of moon.

Rumi

 

Looking within I find

still waters,

 

peace.

Bear with me as I continue to play with the micro-poetry form developed by Kelvin S-M, a fellow dVerse blogger. These are written for the Poetics prompt offered by Mary. The prompt is to write a poem using a quotation as inspiration.

    So very creative, a masterful use of Tilus, one stanza for each quote; along with the bonus of an image; triple the fun, the thrill, the profundity; You get the gold star for imaginative creativity, for sure.
