Silence

Location

Silence
Do you hear it?
That robust sound invading the canyon walls?
Echoing and burying itself against and within the vast perimeters of its landscapes
Do you hear it?
That sound so aggressive and yet so
Simultaneously subtle
That effortlessly pierces the mind, body, spirit
And soul with such ferocity and nuance
That nestles rather comfortably on closed lips
That envelops open minds much like an aura
That causes the levees on thoughts
To break free and appreciation to slowly set in
That is the absence of...
Shh. Do you hear it?
Listen and listen gingerly
Even pause for a spell
You heard it, didn't you? Didn't you?
Silence
