A Pause

At times, we just need to be ready to surrender to silence. These past years, I’ve grown to have great regard for quiet and solitude, that focal point of none-noise to discover what I need to do and be. There’s a great need for it. Because words sometimes can weigh so heavily and all that’s needed to reel ourselves back is that pause.

remedy is in the silence
awakening inside
no matter how heavily the
noise scattered all around…
the quiet cultivated
from solitude is enough
to diffuse all sound;
the widening gashes at
their interlude stop
just before chaos utters its
final word… and the lucidity
of night, despite all rhymes
motors perform against the
highway— through silence,
rightly, we recuperate under
the gentle heel of its hand
