Silence

Stille nacht (not complete silence), 


but a state in which silence prevails,


neither above, below, nor horizontal



A cock crows at the edge of town, 


its cry reverberates to silence, sirens 


wail through the centre of town, 


abruptly cease, the void prevails



A search for clarity, in gatherings or 


alone, taming the ego, in all its jarring 


restlessness 



Leaving clues, a phrase or two, we 


carve ourselves into mountain rock, yet 


are dead in the blink of an eye, thus we 


persist



Silence is not under patent, yet is the 


enemy of the state; a state that 


demands clamour, confusion, slavish


responses, silence defeats all this
