A Hidden Silence that is Beyond Meaning

A Hidden Silence that is Beyond Meaning

And I stand alone in a farrago of thoughts,
thinking long and hard as I am cantilevered in a place of empty;
and the birds, as if they are silently commiserating and consoling,
as if they feel the sting of the sad memories of long ago,
as if they want to bare their broken hearts and cry, as if…
I just need to close my eyes even for just a moment and breathe deeply…
I just need to grasp that unseen hope…I just need to catch even a glimpse of a flicker of light for that tells me that healing is just somewhere in the blue sky, in the setting of the sun, in the blooming flowers of spring,
and even in the rain that also resembles tears
for that rain can also be the healing balm…
And finally, I return to the silence of the moment,
to the silence of the past and to the hidden silence that is beyond meaning,
that is beyond all moments…

    How much sweeter the return to life when we have been wrapped in the healing womb of the world for a while.

  2. I can think of a few moments when I have felt very like this, they are profound moments our soul desperately needs. A kind of a refreshment! You have a beautiful way of describing life and thoughts, very inspiring indeed! 🙂
