Roar of Silence

Moonrise at Barnegat Light

The sound of silence
is deafening, mirroring
the clatter of noise.
How terrified we are
of silence filling our world
with mind-numbing noise
music, TV, phone, chatter
anything to avoid
the terrifying sound
of silence, the voice of God
which waits within
for when we are finally
ready to listen
to hear, learn, surrender.

S ink into its comfort
I nvestigate its vastness
L isten to its message
E scape from your fear
N othingness is everything
C ease running, stop avoiding
E ternity comes in a moment of silence
