Silence

A gathering silence  
Thoughts on lips  
Silence  
Before uttering words  
Of no importance  
 
The silence in churches  
Before prayers  
Silence in the dew drops  
That hydrate flower petals  
Silence of the birds at night  
 
The breathless silence  
Of an athlete before competition  
The guilty silence of a sinner  
Tranquil silence  
Of the falling man  
 
I find silence everywhere  
If you would only stop, listen  
Random silences of the day  
Deeper feeling of silence  
In the darkness
 
My silence  
Your silence  
The solitary silence  
Nature’s silence  
Before the storm
