RIPENING OF MY SOUL  

THE RIPENING OF MY SOUL


 


Newton didn't consider the soul's


ripening when it fell from the tree,


that it was like an old soul


 


I've grown tired of the jousting twixt


the dialectic and the didactic; give me


now silence not rhetoric.


 


I have nothing left but my pedantic poetry;


at least allow me that. It is not a locked box


but a tool to let silence speak


 


I've grown old with the to and fro, with


full frontal engagement that means nothing


it the course of eternity.


 


I am now forgetful of rules and injunctions;


and have gone beyond the ring pass nots


of the matrix.


 


 


Neither am I taciturn nor obsequious, I merely


am unresponsive to the small and large hand


on the dial of time.


 


Neither do have designs on re igniting old


flames or rekindling old hatred. Old souls


just become empty silos for new grain,


 


@2017 Sai Grafio

I really like the imagery and concepts you put together here. Especially describing your poetry as a tool to let silence speak.
