Herein slouchless posture silent and still
Stands I hoping to capture silence now,
But what I've perceived as silence not still
Proves fruitlessly herein the here and now.
Who, what where, when, why, and how, springs to mind.
Now I come to a draw-like conclusion,
Silence may or may not be in the mind.
Can silence be shrugged-off as illusion?
It's difficult in this day and age for
Which to achieve true-silence, if at all.
Perhaps true-silence existed far before
Space, time, and life ever existed at all?
