Where to find that soundlessness? Is Silence merely absence of sound or more than that?
“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.
of absolute silence
and if it would be possible
to heal a pounding heart.
Outdoors is filled,
whether city or country,
with cacophony of chirps,
croaks, buzzes, and beeps.
Where would silence exist
as a natural setting? Mountain
top? Under the sea? In a sound-
proof room, one might look around,
feel uncomfortable, apprehensive.
You cannot hear a sound; no one
can hear you. Heart continues pounding.
