Silence

Silence is an invisible tree
With songs resting on its leaves
Silence is a flower
Colored by voices
And shaped by drums

It is the absence of sound
And the dwelling place
Of the eternal song
Like the night sky is full of stars
Though you can’t see them

Silence is music in its whole
Like the day and night together
Would make time still
Like the man and woman as one
Would make love absent

Silence is a symphony
With all their bows on their laps
All their reeds still on trees
All their woods without wind
And conspiring to make music
Out of nothing

Silence is like the night sky
Full of stars though you can’t see them

G. Flores
