My haiku collection

I. Amongst darkness there is light...
Magnificent stars
Natures chandeliers
Beacons of hope



II. Pen...
Messenger of thoughts,
The instrument of harmony
Mightier than sword.



III. Dreams
Imaginations,
A world of wishful thinking
Mankind's safe haven

The beauty of silence...

"Under all speech that is good for anything, there lies a silence that is better. Silence is deep as eternity; speech is shallow as time."
                                                              - 'Thomas Carlyle'

Cars honking. Men shouting. Sirens wailing.
Chaos. Noise. Everywhere...
That's what we hear sleeping, waking, amidst our daily routines. Noise-anywhere, everywhere. The quiet of home disrupted by the blaring TV. The serenity of the park polluted by the ongoing construction nearby. The peace of mind salvaged by the constant input of information... Our life clogged by noise...

And in this loud racquet we forget to acknowledge the peacefulness of quiet; the importance of silence. For once when there is a power cut and the entire town is shrouded in darkness, do we get a moment to reflect on the necessity of silence. When we get to hear the quiet, feel it. A time when we are frozen in time, when we are engulfed in silence...

And ever so often we encounter the other silence- true, pure- purging our souls, invigorating our spirits. The peaceful quietness in the late hours of night. The bubbling calm near a lake. It is then, when we realise how noisy our life is. It is then when we begin to appreciate the beauty of silence...

Silence is peace,
Silence is calm,
Silence is safest
In a state of alarm....
