silence

shhhh silence is so alluring

and the word “silence” so false

to explain something so much larger than lack of words.

silence is what opens upon itself to

reveal feelings hidden by familiar habits,

feelings pushed down by responses

so familiar we know them by contour, by edge, by frame.

what other word than “silence” would mean

change, movement, seeds bursting through almost-frozen soil?

what other word implies force, energy, newness, spring?

what newness leaps unbridled and raw beneath our daily routine,

beneath yesterday’s expectation?

what would our lives be like if we completely broke

with yesterday’s expectation?

if we appeared new, fresh, formless, with dawn’s apocalypse?

  1. what a beautiful piece…
    I haven’t been “tag surfing” in a long, long while and for some reason chose just now to do so, and came across you/this piece/this moment.

    since I don’t believe in coincidences, I am happy to meet you. 🙂
    blessings and best–

  2. This morning I read, “The young mind dies to everything” (from “The Book of Life” by J. Krishnamurti).

    And now, reading this, well… it caused a shiver of excitement. Beautiful and thought-provoking.

  3. Silence is what opens upon itself……

    These words are staying with me, resonating. As always …..thank you. And blessings.
