Silence Is The Universal Library - Poem by Dejan Stojanovic

Is there ever a true moment of silence?
There can be no such moment
Unless we should move
To the world before the world.

Since nothing is absolute
There is no absolute silence,
Only an appearance
Of temporary peace.

Since there is no real silence,
Silence will contain all the sounds,
All the words, all the languages,
All knowledge, all memory.

Everything is contained within this library
In the brain of the Universe—
Its source of inexhaustible energy
In the library of the silence.

    The first verse is magnificent.
    The second verse is astounding.
    The third verse is amazing,
    and the fourth verse contains all knowledge within itself. (Report) Reply
