TRUE SILENCE KNOWN

 TRUE SILENCE KNOWN

Have you sat through the long night,

eyes pointless in the voided light,

when even awareness of life’s beat

fades to a sense of slight.

Have you had remaining a single thought,

an elusive mist you never sought

that by the last net of a hidden self

was by chance caught.

Have you seen a laughing child skim a stone,

or savour a melting ice cream cone

and felt nothing but emptiness inside,

then you my friend, have true silence known.
