Dear Silence

silence is golden, says everyone

yet they never are.

silence is a space of quiet, 

air that is not full.

silence is a person, 

who is honored yet never speaks.

silence is a powerful wind

that never gets the chance to blow.

silence is every shadow of a word,

never uttered but only breathed. 

silence has never won

nor lost; it is a neutral state.

silence bores the restless

yet it inspires the patient.

silence was...

and now it has been broken. 


Until next time...
