Silence

Rating: 5.0

The silence after a frenzied riot,
After a terrible shooting fray,
After the noise of neighbors quarrel,
After a furious, explosive day...
This is the silence man longs for.

The silence of a wife o'er a partners death,
Of the rich whose wealth has turn to ashes,
Of a maiden whose lover has left for battles,
Of a gambler over gigantic losses...

This is the silence of grief accursed.

Yes. silence has many faces and phases. You have nicely penned them. The highest level of silence is contemplation sitting on a sea shore or on the courtyard of a church or on the mountains where you and nature are alone besides a brook.
