Silence

Rating: 4.3
There is the sudden silence of the crowd
above a player not moving on the field,
and the silence of the orchid.

The silence of the falling vase
before it strikes the floor,
the silence of the belt when it is not striking the child.

The stillness of the cup and the water in it,
the silence of the moon
and the quiet of the day far from the roar of the sun.

like snow falling in the darkness of the house— the silence before I wrote a word and the poorer silence now... interesting thoughts on silence. tony

A little bit different from Pope's Ode on Solitude, it clutches in a handful of silence scattering from the stars under the moonshine sometimes, sometimes felt in the orchards and when marking how the things are, how do they exist?

The silence of the falling vase before it strikes the ?oor, the silence of the belt when it is not striking the child. OHH this is a very fine meditation. Silence in my mind, in your mind, in our experiences. tony

A word of thanks to Annette Potgieter, for her wonderful comment; ... ' I wish to believe that silence is a language the silent understand.' Claps....

'And there is the silence of this morning which I have broken with my pen, a silence that had piled up all night' - wonderfully said, and I can myself relate to it. Silence is required for creativity.
