All River Sage Sonnets
IMPROVISE OF SILENCE
Leave your restless wanderings traveler, hark!
And quieten clamorous voices from within,
Which rise. O! listen, be attentive, keen
And what “Viyogi” says, O! traveler, mark.
O’er burdened with the word we call success,
Which world proclaims so loudly. Underneath
The very loudness lie some sounds. Beneath
Your breast is harmony within access.
So reach for it and listen, pay homage.
Not hurtling go to problems in bad taste,
Be patient, silence can with ease manage
All calamities which lay humans waste.
When you are faced with problems and carnage,
In silence meet them; not in clueless haste.
