In one moment (the only moment) of silence
Are dying all of my ideas about silence.
As sound beyond sound, beyond hearing, and beyond
Beyond is the densest openness of silence.
There is an endless loveliness in your eyes while
I am trying to say something about silence.
See the past, present, and future of all language
Created, preserved, and destroyed inside silence.
Speak your heart to me, dear one, whoever you are,
In these uncertain moments enclosed by silence.
Word-truth, our rarely achieved alchemy of sense,
Is a sound transmuting silence into silence.
Keep quiet Nicola, failure of what you know,
While we keep listening for answers in silence.
