    Silence has its own lanuguage. It is very important to give due attention to silence in between the talks else everybody will be a talking and nobody will be listening.

    • Exactly! Life is really in these pauses and nowhere else.

  • Beautifully expressed SILENCE and its so well written

  • Aesha Shah

    Eye-opener. My thoughts keep running all the time in my mind and my words keep flowing without any pauses. I know that a pause could make a difference to my relationships and your prose poetry also made me realise that, I think I should start taking pauses.

    • Yes, life is actually in the pauses. πŸ™‚

  • it’s good to pause in life, I agree. but not pause so long that the pause begins to talk wrong things and push people farther apart. quite a nice poem. πŸ™‚
