[Poetry] A Quiet Place

I’m looking for a place
That is peaceful and quiet,
For a moment of calm
Among the days of riot.

A voice whispered, “The world
Will always make an awful din,
Unless, darling girl,
You first calm the chaos within.”

Welcome back to World of Words, a prompt I’m co-hosting with Rosemarie of A Reading Writer and Maria of Doodle Scribbles. This week, we’re traveling to India with the word shanta, a Bengali word meaning peaceful, calm

The rules are simple:

  1. Every week, we’ll post a word from a different country in the world.
  2. Write a poem inspired by that word and use the hashtag #worldofwords. You can also tag us so we know to come and check out your poem!
  3. We’ll be sharing our favorites on Instagram, the main hub of our co-hosting duties, but depending on the response here on WordPress, I’ll share my favorites here too.

Looking forward to reading your poetry!
