Silence

When I am silent,  
I have thunder hidden inside.      
~ Rumi
     
     
Noise germinates verbiage -    
  culturing communication    
  inside petri-dished moments      
     
When distance dissipates      
  proximity dissolves necessity      
  of sound beyond breathing
 
Barrel-chested rhythms      
  replace words with innate understanding;
 
blood becomes a messenger      
  subcutaneously carrying      
  an antidote of silence      
superior to our human language      
     
What is innately known      
  rises to the surface;      
hidden thunder reverberates      
     
~
