[Poem] Silence


Silence is poetry written by air on the mind –

Breathing sense to the soul;

To accord oranges in an oculus,

And grant vision to the blind.

Eternal rumblings of the soothsayer –

Saying you should capture the seconds;

The seconds capture you,

And dissatisfaction keeps getting strayer.

Age is the truth written by time on the skin –

Making love to the seconds;

To impart reason to futility,

And cast humility to the grin.

Nocturnal musings of the naysayer –

Asking what’s the meaning of it all?

The meaning lies in silence,

And satisfaction gets a little less grayer.
