In silence we walk --

between leaves a lemon sun

cypresses and lean hyssops

tender green hills --

there is no need for words

where the wind whispers freely


we sit --

your smile speaks of reunion

I am forgetful, forgiving, forgiven

I’m all leaves of grass and thymus

the crumbly rock, I am, the nectar

the timeless mantra, the soothing stone


our joined hands speak of silence

of its liquid presence, of its ethereal greeting

as again, we walk

to those ancient buildings

made of ageless French stone


past resilience, well beyond the simple promise

after compline, when the sky pours its darkness

willingly, we’ll tear this quiet blanket

only when time’s voice is ripe

and silence’s work is done.

Just LOVE this poem, Axilea and especially all the ideas and images in that final stanza. "we'll tear this quiet blanket" in relation to silence is totally divine! Wish I wrote it! :)) xx

Axilea, I have always loved your romantic style and this is an excellent piece with so many visuals that I can enjoin and engage in.
Reviewed by Odin Roark 8/17/2012
As many poets avoid personification, it is indeed a pleasure to read a piece where the narrative focus, through the clever personification, leaves open a rather intriguing enigma. Certainly not as simple as "emotion" and indubitably beyond "intellectual exercise." Perhaps it is arguably the essence of living you proffer here? (Being one who embraced the abstract and relishes the oblique, and editing and proofing books for a living, I couldn't let my comments slip into the mundane and pedestrian as some comments might suggest of this work.) More than just words arresting response... which is poetry's only desire.

Hi Axilea!

You have penned an outstanding "definition" of Revoiced, one that has the reader melting the more he/she reads. Thank you for sharing this. Excellent!

In Spirit,

This by far is 'your' best work yet Axilea,just beautifully worded w/words that are thought provoking and touch on memories of where no words needed to be spoken.

i don't know why exactly but the Loire Valley
comes to mind - must be the mention of 'ageless French stone';
i'm probably way wide of the mark;
seems to me, Axilea, here's experience born in holiday
with the air of relaxation and superior communication
and the atmosphere of honeymoon, second honeymoon?
i'm rambling, forgive me, but i do love the atmosphere
generated by your words

Reviewed by Asa Seeley 8/15/2012
there is a time for everything...a time to speak and a time to be silent. both 'times' are very valuable. thanks for share

Reviewed by Charlie 8/14/2012
I think so many times we get hemmed in by technology, media, noise-- how can we hear/feel/be inspiration? In the silence, we can hear what we otherwise cannot. Ears wide open-- inner eyes wide open-- no distractions, now buzzing, busy, schedule-ridden bodies and busses-- just you and the cosmos. And did you ever feel such love between people as when you were silently together, dreaming of eternal things? --Charlie

nuptial vowels voiced" or the promises of commitment and conduct "revoiced" or renegotiated as in the challenges from,'Survanta' - either way the implications hold the same values and wend from forced abstinence to the unintentional - all on the verge of reconciliation or, perhaps ceding to make amends on the wings of a lark - rich description of the venue, and events Axilea - enjoyable reading - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael
