TITLE: THE VOICE OF COUNTENANCE

The visage is a telling thing
Yet without words may often sting
Our countenance has a voice
It may be telling without choice

A smile is of the softest sound
Flows from heaven to the ground
Gentle eyes reveal love’s birth
Filling hearts with joy and mirth

Mercy through look’s loving touch
Compassion’s voice we yearn so much
Acceptance in a little wink
All the bowels of stress unkink

Creases upward speak of joy
Lifting each God’s girl and boy
Oh yes, countenance is loud
Especially grimace of the proud

Levels of sound that we create
What we see we contemplate
Voice assumed from what we see
With the look that points to me

“Is she mad…what have I done?”
We stew and think ‘til setting sun
Without audible we assume
Planting seeds of doubt in bloom

With countenance be aware
Of soundless voice we often share
So to be kind going extra miles
Add to each face gentle smiles!

I had to do a double take at your title. After starting the poem I was thinking… yeah, that really makes sense. You have very neat thoughts in this. I like that you related the countenance to “without words may often sting“, “levels of sound”, and “soundless voice“. I really like your message. Your rhyme and meter are very good in this. Very nice work!

This is a message to be held close to our hearts and minds. Thanks for sharing this well thought out entry.

Yes, I love the message here. You are oh so right about our visage speaking volumes!
