Silence is essential for learning because silence teaches from within...


 

The Silences:

 

I’m well versed in

the silences of evil:

 

the quiet sarcasm

the look

the derision

the sneer

 

I know well

the movement away

the withdrawal from the touch

the taste of disgust

 

I am aware

of the tones

of the threats

detachments of the heart

 

But in the same silences

I hear in the hush

of the understandings

of Wisdom

in conversations

Love with Love

Truth with Truth

Light from Light

and like breath

I draw in Life

and like water

I drink from the Living Source

in the silences

I enjoyed reading this poem. I love silence--so many people, places, and things try very hard to steal it away . . .

How about people who call you saying, "I have nothing to do so I called you!" (stolen silence)
