Hey! Silence, I see you.
You are the space between the notes in a symphony resonating in our souls;
the skipped heart beat when our child stops breathing;
the caesura that connects the poet, the speaker, and the listener with God.
You absorb all insults, gunshots, and explosions, yet retaliate with acceptance and Truth.
You are the infinite forgiveness in a moment of reflection.
You are the words worth listening to when this poem is over.
This is a post for the Monthly Peace Challenge: Empathy Blogging. Some of my favorite bloggers are poets: Geo Sans, Dieu On The Grass, and Bodhisattvaintraining. This is my attempt to blog some poetry for peace.
