........Silence is a sign of loneliness.
Solitude and silence teach me to love,
for what they are,
not for what they say or
what they have done.

See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon and the sun,
how they move in silence...........
we need silence to be able to touch souls.

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in an clearer light,
and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.
Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.

Introduction to Silence

Silence upon other silence grows;
Taller than any skyward cathedral,
Wider than divisions, between two brothers.

The only sincere silence is natural,
Or found by a flickering candle’s flame,
And the latency, of a sleeping child.

After a death, some silence may roar
Down zigzagging corridors, of dazed;
Haunting midnight's vertiginous dreams.

Numbness opens vast reservoirs of quiet
And in the resultant- preternaturally stilled-
Silence sometimes finds its earthly voice.

I now present to you, Silence itself-
Bereft of courtesies, or dignified flourishes;
Bare as a babe at death- or birth.
Patti Masterman

Dear Nurse of Thought, calm chaos-brooding dove,
Thee, Silence, well I love;
Mother of Fancy, friend and sister mine,
Silence, my heart is thine.

Rarer than Eloquence, and sweeter far
Thy dulcet pauses are;
Stronger than Music, charm she ne'er so well,
Is, Silence, thy soft spell.

The rushing crystals throb about my brain,
And thrill, and shoot again,--
Their teeming imagery crowds my sphere,
If Silence be but here.

Bodily rest is Sleep, the soothing sleep,
Spirit-rest, Silence deep;
O daily Discord, cease, for mercy, cease!
Break not this happy peace.

The melodies within alone are heard,
By their own stillness stirr'd;
O mute, and motionless,-- O death of strife,
O precious lull in life!

Now know I how Pygmalion's spirit stern
Could on a statue yearn,--
The hush'd, the beautiful, the calmly fair,
The marble Silence there!
Martin Farquhar Tupper

Feel the dark

Feel the dark, black as coal
and soft as velvet,
beneath your fingertips
Dark is upon the night

Darkness all about me
In my own solemn silence
The silence has substance
As thick as can be

Silence about me
As loud as a scream
In a nightmarish dream
It can terrify me

Silence has a feel
Of darkness in silk cloaked
As a desperate cry being choked
Phantasmic, yet real

As Quiet surrounds me
The silence has substance
The absence of presence
is deafening to me

Those sounds of silence
Cry out to those who seek
The companionship of shadows.

A vast endless vacuum
Of blackened day,
I am sucked into an existence
summoning the cold from the depths

Where darkness looms over,
It cradles me in comfort,
Blankets me with security.
Released from the mares that haunt the mind

And taken in by them
The shielding shadows of the dark,
I am embellished with life anew
And unleashing the fear the light kept hidden.

Away from the solitude reaped
By the scars of wounds that bite.
In a playground of discontent
with creeping shadows

In an asylum of euphoria,
Under the veil of darkness
Do I smile and frolic,
Soothed by the kiss of night.
