Silence

The way of not speaking

it stands before you plainly

it is begging for your attention

silently of course

It came before, and so must you return

silence in its exacting fullness

all the many mute tongues

of the sages

all who surely know

so wise yet not saying, anything

nothing at all

speaking is one step away, after another

after another

stop right now

and retrace your steps

to find that source

that sacred place

before lips move

where non-utterance is saying

all that needs to be said

come from that place

where all words have their origin

where words will align

with that great wisdom

you will then speak

from the heart and with the soul

empathy,
