Sometimes Silence


Sometimes, silence.

Sometimes, silence speaks.

Sometimes silence speaks loud
speaks louder
speaks louder than thunder
than whispers.

Sometimes, silence.

Sometimes silence gathers itself
    --folds upon folds--
silence looms and gathers and grows and buffets--

Sometimes silence is a hurricane.

Silence washes
silence roars, the waterfall
smooths and smooths and smooths and
Sometimes silence cleanses
silence breathes
breathes in
and breathes
and breathes out

Sometimes, silence.
