Silence is….

soothing, safe, a welcome respite from the day;

a force that suffocates and takes your peace away;

a sound that signifies accord with what they say;

an awkward moment when you’re staggered with dismay;


the lull before you face the fury of the storm;

the knowledge that it’s over and you’re safe and warm;

excitement as you wait for actors to perform;

the solace as you contemplate the cruciform;


the wall that greets you when you’re in disgrace ;

the endless void of interplanetary space;

the wondrous look of disbelief upon your face,

when a simple ‘yes’ incites your heart to race.
