"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry



silence is a state of mind
the balance of spirit, the self sufficiency of spirit
the still in a given place, falling over soul like a grace
just the way flowers fall from the blooming cherry tree.

silence is also a reality
the lack of words when everything hurts,
or an answer one does not want to give in words,
yet the most painful answer. the loudest scream of all.

  1. Yes. Verily, sometimes – silence is the loudest scream of all – a deafening silence, it is called.
