silence


silent, is the silence of the night
a wave of silence in the sky,
in silence the stream gurgles
the silence of the storm, is silent.
but what is hidden in your mind,
in silence the eyes give away.
the poem forms in mind, in silence,
in silence the words spill out,
in your presence, my thoughts turn into poem,
even with your pretense of silense!
