silence

Finding peace in stillness of life

When the world is asleep at morning and everything is quiet,

Softly, silence falls, its presence so profound.

No sound of leaves rustling, no bird's chirp,

Just the lovely sound of morning silence.

In the centre of the forest, among the tall trees,

Everything is enveloped in silence.

There were no footsteps, no machine hum,

Only a faint wind whispering through invisible branches.

In the enormous, incredibly large desert,

 

There is nothing to hide from the endless silence.

nor a roar from the beast, nor a gush of water 

Just the silence that feeds on the hush of the dunes. 

 

In the ocean's depths, where animals frolic,

 

Deep silence reigns in the unknown depths.

 

No gull's caw, no waves splashing,

 

Just the peaceful lull of the motionless river.

In the centre of the city, among the commotion,

 

There are moments of delicate silence.

No horn honking, no crowd chatter, 

Just the silent break in the cacophony. 

 

Within the mental spaces where ideas are stored,

 

Like a kind mentor, silence rules.

nor a sound of concerns, nor an echoe of fear,

Just the clear tranquilly of the present moment.

When two people embrace, hearts do indeed meet

Silence has a wonderful language that communicates volumes.

There's no need to explain or use words. 

Just the presence itself, comforting as a gentle downpour. 

 

When day ends and night begins in the twilight hours,

The world is shrouded in silence like a veil of light.

There's no need to hurry or make noise.

The exquisite quietness, in its soft whisper.

Thus, let's treasure the quiet in all of its beauty.

Because we discover our space within its depths.

A peaceful moment, a time to simply be, 

We are really free when there is only silence.

Sometimes, in our busy world, we fail to pause and recognise the beauty of quiet. Silence is a soft presence that can ease our minds and comfort our spirits, just as loudness has its own beat and melody.

Imagine waking up early in the morning, when everyone is still asleep and the sun has just begun to shine. Silence falls on us then, softly, like a warm blanket, enveloping us in its warm embrace. There's only the tranquil serenity of daybreak, no hurry or rush.

Towering trees envelop us as we enter the heart of the forest, their stature apparent and bold. Silence rules supreme here and envelops us in its peaceful embrace. The only sound breaking the silence is the soft whisper of the wind through the branches overhead.

Silence reaches the limits of perception in the vastness of the desert, where the sand continues to the horizon. There's only the gentle sound of the dunes moving in the breeze, no sound of the beast howling or a rush of water.

There is a profound silence even in the ocean's depths, where amazing and bizarre animals can be found. The only sound that breaks the silence is the soft lull of the ocean as it flows with the tides, not even the splash of waves or the cry of gulls.

Moments of quiet can be discovered in the gaps between in the middle of the city, among the everyday bustle. We can find comfort and tranquilly in those calm moments, away from the blaring horns and clamour of the mob.

Silence is a kind guide in the chambers of our minds where thoughts whirl and swirl like a roaring storm. We can obtain perspective and clarity in those peaceful times of introspection, which enables us to handle life's challenges with poise and ease.

Silence has its own language and can say volumes when it comes to the meeting of hearts and souls in the hug of loved ones. Knowing that sometimes words are not essential to express our deepest sentiments can bring us comfort and understanding in those moments of shared quiet.

Let us, then, celebrate the beauty of silence in all of its forms. Whether it's the quiet of the morning, the tranquilly of the outdoors, or the private times spent in solitude with our loved ones, may we never forget to pause, take a deep breath, and realise the subtle presence of silence in our lives.
