English Poetry

Life’s honing frictions ,

Sharpen Love’s potentiality

All the more.

Life’s fuming afflictions,

Strengthen Love’s intensity

All the more.

Life’s binding restrictions,

Season Love’s tenacity

All the more.

Life’s churning contradictions

Speeden Love’s capability

All the more.

……………….

Reach this stage

Between the known and the unknown,

Reckon this stance,

Between action and inaction,

Realise this stillness,

Between speech and silence.

Kusum

    Hi

    That’s beautiful…. The contrasting scenario and the last stanza . Well done .
    Yeah… that’s the way to keep going . There are volumes spoken in the stillness between speech and silence .The poem ends with a splendid oxymoron contrasting speech and silence .Nicely woven thoughts

    On second reading the whole of the last stanza is filled with that figure of speech called oxymoron.
    That makes for a grand winding up.
