I think I know what you mean in this lovely poem. You know where you would like to be when you leave this life behind. I know as well. I liked it very much. Really made me think. All the best. Ulla:)))

Wait. What? Did you just write your own epitaph? It's nice but a bit unexpected. I think that most of us never fully expected or anticipated all the twists and turns our lives would take. As we age we arrive at a point where we are surprised to wake up each morning, after that we are not only surprised but also grateful. Nice poem.

    I'm afraid I did. You know, it didn't start out that way, but...you know poetry. You don't write it, it flows through you.

Hello victortouche,

am I reading of how you got reflections from being silent
(by a mediating service) of how you could hear the drops of rain, view acorns on the ground and feel the soft breeze of the wind leaving the fragrance of a rose?

Beautiful poem to ponder on
Still cannot figure out what the bison represents
Gert

    Loneliness, the same thing that goes to the grave with us.

You write of a peaceful resting place. What more could we ask than to be laid down in a gentile field where the wind and rain nurtured the earth and we felt at one with the world.

    Yup, you got it. And as we slowly return to the world as the elemental beings we are.

This is a work I found myself reading through several times, both silently and aloud. A pensive, self-reflective and vaguely nostalgic account, although I also feel a cautionary vibe as well:
Mostly me,
but a bit of
what's to be.

I love the closing note:
akin eternity

I am left with the sense that in the end, after man's affairs have all ended and we have all departed this earth, then all that remains is "eternity".

Warm regards,
pf

A beautiful tribute to a beautiful creature. Your poem is sad, smooth, easy to read and tugs at the heart strings. It is unfortunate this breed is gone, your poem also reflects the need for survival. Back then it was a case of us or them.

    Yes, the poem can also be taken this way. I like that you have chosen my alternative route.

I've spent time wandering around the prairies and the hills. There is a sense that it is such a wide-open space, and there is a kind of a feeling of potential. I could imagine anything happening there. Thanks for this delightful poem.
Bill~

Great title and picture. They both set you up for a peaceful read. Hats off to click3333. He/ she seems to be used, to represent poems, frequently these days. There's a lot of talent there. This is a very gentle piece and is enjoyable to read, again and again. I like the rhymes you chose, especially 'rose' and 'repose'. There is a lot which can be read into your piece. Multi-interpretations. I like the title the best, "The Music of Stillness." It is poignant and powerful. Thank you for sharing your talent with me.
Take care, Jesse

    That's funny, I agree with you in all regards. Ha ha. No, not because I think I write so wonderful. Because ur interpretation was mine as well. And, I'll have you know, I changed the title. My original did not create a sense of deep peace in me. This one did.

    It's good to go with your instincts on these things. Your title was well chosen.

This pensive, poignant piece speaks of the American Bison, true, but in spirit only, I believe, Doug. Figuratively rather than literally in other words.
As majestic a creature and as plentiful as the Buffalo once was, sadly the plains and prairies of the west echo only their silence now, for the most part.
Sad, when you stop to think about it.
This reads beautifully aloud and it's meanings go far deeper than mere "face value."
The whole poem evokes a profound feeling of melancholy despondency.

A interesting and thought provoking poem Vic, reflection after attending a service, I think most will be able to relate to that mate. Been to a few too many myself of late and they do cause one to stop and ponder where you are in life.

    Yes, they do, don't they? Or I think they should, same as you. Agreeing with U at first glance, makes me sit backm for another cup of coffee. Just for principles sake, you do that too.
