Silence speaks aloud,
Unveiling all the rooted secrets,
It’s empty, yet answers loud.

Silence still in calm waters vowed,
Roars in waves, life forfeits,
Silence speaks aloud.

Silence veiled in air before storm,
Blows away all the puppets,
It’s empty, yet answers loud.

Silence enrobed in high clouds,
Strikes as lightening, nature’s facet,
Silence speaks aloud.

Silence shielded in wicked browed,
His aim not misses it’s target,
It’s empty, yet answers loud.

Silence obscured in his shroud,
Arousing terror, in grave’s portrait,
Silence speaks aloud,
It’s empty, yet answers loud.

For the first time I’ve tried writing a villanelle:

A villanelle is a fixed-form poem consisting of five tercets and a quatrain and also follows a specific rhyme scheme using only two different sounds. Thus, the villanelle has nineteen total lines. There is also a pattern of two refrains, which are repeated lines in a poem or verse. Therefore, in a villanelle, two different lines repeat throughout the poem. Specifically, the first line recurs as lines 6, 12, and 18, and the third line recurs as lines 9, 15, and 19.In addition, the pattern becomes even more complex with a specific rhyme scheme. In a villanelle, the rhyme scheme is ABA ABA ABA ABA ABA ABAA.

Kindly share your feedback in the comment section cause this is my first villanelle.

Written in response to:

Thursday Poetry Competition: To experiment with different styles of poetry, sonnets, limericks, etc on any topic of your choice. And the twist is each verse must begin with the same letter.

Thank you!

    1. Thank you so much😊 I always wanted to write on silence and then thursday competition was held saying any poetry form, so checked the net for all poetry forms, in that I felt villanelle is different and might be a little challenging too, but on trying it was very easy to express. Didn’t take much time to draftπŸ™‚
