Silence

DSCF9201

the world
can be a
loud place
the silence
can be
shocking,
a ringing in
the ears
of all the
whispers
missed
over time,
everything
nameless
you are
afraid
is
irretrievably
lost.
the ringing
is loud,
a disturbance,
jarring you
to a new
state of
awake,
in which
the past
stays lodged
far back
in time
and the
silence
becomes
real and
holy and
pure. – TS
