The Infinite Silence Speaks

 

The Infinite Silence Speaks

through every rustle of tree leaves,

through every singing bird,

through every sound of any kind,

and through the silent spaces between the sounds.

The Infinite Silence is Void and Darkness

but also Fullness, a dazzling backlight

that shines through

every gleaming tree, every shimmering squirrel

and surrounds every human being

with a halo.
