And I Sit in Silence

…and I sit in silence…philosophy becomes irrelevant at this point…i am touched by the valid and velvet hand of poetry as it defines, line by line, the silence of longing and belonging…the silence of soft and low moments…the silence of peace, of truth, of love, of what is infinite…the silence of the in-betweens…and the silence of the woods at the beginning of the day when the first light breaks in…i sit in silence…in emptiness…to return to myself…
