Just Another Thought

We sat in silence one day & I realised,
'Silence' need not be the lack of words;
It could often speak truth instead of babble.

I saw a soaring dove one day & I realised,
'White' need not be the lack of colours;
it could often be the union of all the vibrant ones.

I saw a girl reading one day & I realised,
'Solitude' need not be the lack of people;
It could often be time spent with yourself.

I smiled to myself today & I realised,
'Bliss' need not be the lack of troubles;
It often is a constellation of happy moments.

Poetic Radha :)

I like it ....and every time i see you or Jas or 666 churning out verses, a needle of envy pierces my heart...i'd give an arm and a leg to be able to write something like this :(

Hi Radha,

Like you, I vote for truth rather than a babble.

Very interested in your comment on Lotus Reads' blog-review of my bestselling novel Vegemite Vindaloo.

I will answer your question about the title in the next few hours, in a post on my own blog. I'll also link to your site.

Do drop by to read the explanation if you have time.

Cheers

David
