In Silence, There is Eloquence – Double Ennead

In Silence, There is Eloquence – Double Ennead

The air thick with silence 
I strive to embrace 
the joy found in this calm reverberation. 
What more can I ask for? 
I live in the now. 

I search within myself
and dig through my thoughts 
for the answers I’ve been seeking for decades. 
It all waters down to 
this glowing silence. 

Soaking in this newness, 
I flourish within. 
Next time someone asks about my well-being, 
I would tell them the truth- 
I’m tranquil and still.

This poem is written for the Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 336.

The Double Ennead comprises five lines with a syllable count of 6/5/11/6/5, (33 SYLLABLES per stanza) 3 STANZAS EACH = 99 SYLLABLES, NO MORE, NO LESS!

It was created by Colleen Cheesebro for the Carrot Ranch Literary Community. The Tanka Tuesday Challenge was to write a syllabic poem using the synonyms of the words QUIET & SEEK. I used the synonyms – SILENCE & SEARCH.
