Silence - Poem by David Mitchell
Silence is what was before all else was made:
Before it was cut with the words 'Fiat lux'.
Silence is what we both lack and need,
We need to stop doing and learn how to be.
Silence is what we do not really know;
Be silent. You are silent, and what do you hear?
Silence? No; 'tis the music of nature you hear.
Become part of the cosmos: leave chaos behind.
