Today’s poetry topic idea is quiet. The idea of silence. The absence of sound.
Quiet, as a poetry topic idea, can be interesting for poetry.
A poet could write about things like calm, stillness and peacefulness. A poet could describe a scene that has these qualities. For example, a poet might write about a nature scene, or someone sitting in a quiet area in their home. In this sense, quiet would be viewed as something positive.
Alternatively, a poet could write about quiet in a negative sense. They might describe someone lonely or someone isolated in some way. For example, they might write about a person sitting home alone during the evening, or someone trapped somewhere, like in a cave. They could write about a variety of situations of someone experiencing quiet, when they would rather experience some type of sound.
A poet might also decide to write about the absence of quiet. Quiet can be seen as the absence of sound and so this would be the lack of that situation. A poet could write about someone in a noisy situation who wishes things were quieter. For example, a poet might write a poem about someone in a house full of noisy people, who wishes they just had some calm and quiet.
