The Hidden Sound

Of silence

There’s sometimes a moment
when we’re touched by meaning
so profound it can’t be said,
as though something
beneath the surface of all life
holds our heart
within the hidden sound
known to lovers,
the sound of silence,
connecting us to the stars
and the beauty of the universe.

We live just once,
though the silence
that whispers in our heart
lives forever,
its unwritten language
somehow touching all our lives,
its silent song unheard by our ear
is consciousness
as large as the universe
knowing what it is to be human,
and it’s always there inside us
a constant presence
through the endless change.

This conscious silence,
like light from stars becoming love and dreams,
has no beginning and no end,
it’s consciousness becoming life,
and we’re woven through its silent mystery,
the boundless eternal
weaving poetry into our heart.
