Silence - Poem by Michele C. Messina Long
I thought if I could sit still, I would discover silence.
Yet when I stilled myself, I encountered calm.
Moreover, in the calm I heard the sounds of people rushing around me,
Caught up in their own whirlwind creations.
So, I became even more motionless, and what I heard then was not silence.
It was the sounds of nature all around me.
Now, once again I sought to locate silence, and do you know what I encountered?
It was the sound of my thoughts inspiring me to communicate with the Universe.
When I finally stilled my thoughts, I unearthed my most current experience,
Which is, in itself, something most sensational to witness the sound of my own heart's vibrations, rhythmically throbbing within me,
So balanced that it compliments my existence with a melodic backdropp rhythm for my entire being to delight in experiencing.
Maybe that day I experience silence will be the day I pass on.
NO - probably not even then, for I can't possibly conceive me ever being silent!
When I get to the other side, I'm quite sure I'll have questions to ask there also,
That will surely last an eternity!
