"Silence"

Not one word uttered
Nothing heard - or spoken
Not a solitary sound
As the silence thunders
Shhhhhhh....shhhhhhh...shhhhhh...

Such a paradox
Silence breeding even more silence
And thundering quiet
Ah! The power of holy silence
Shhhhhhh...shhhhhhh...shhhhhhh...

We are mute
We are stunned in awe
We are bells tolling
Without tongues
Shhhhhhh...shhhhhhh...shhhhhhh...
