Those silent Promises

Understanding, loving, and giving go silent,
A Promise, a primrose,
a yellow, a quite declaration of a spring,
Unspoken, seals, of a day, a night,
A Sun in the sky marks and
Sketches with an orange stroke a cusp,
before and after a black and white,
The bud promised a flower,
it paints its petals and spreads, laying a table,
The seed dried, but kept its promise of a tree,
in years it grew tall and green,
A promise it did not deny,
A mother became a promise of life,
to give and yield to a joy of giving even after
cutting off, the Umbilical cord with a knife,
The promise if kept,
as promised
has a speechless premise!!

    “Those silent promises” , is both a gentle and contemplative work.It is a fine exemplar of the discerning use of words as fine as the brushstrokes alluded by the poem.
