At First, Silence

At first,

silence,

the kind that penetrates,

beyond conscious awareness,

a subtle silence,

one that startles,

no engines,

running motors,

airplanes en route,

coffee makers.

 

Suddenly,

everything is quiet,

with ears ringing,

from the void,

I close my eyes,

sinking in,

to the implications

of 

deep silence,

that might go on,

forever,

and if it did,

would I be able to hear it?

 

Maybe there is another sense,

one we can not access,

now,

but that will be able to hear,

and 

understand,

the kind of silence,

that goes on forever,

beyond the confines,

of shape,

and form,

into a realm of surrender,

where silence,

is what we need,

to get there.
