SILENCEFUL



silence is full 
of expectancy and hope
of morn and night
of light and dark
of song and tears
of life and death
sometimes
silence is a warm dimension
that feels much like
a bottomless bath
with its motherly
arms and heartbeat
soothing and reassuring

I try to bring silence into children's worlds, but sometimes other adults cannot stand the silence which I do not understand as I crave it.

Funny indeed, many people are afraid of both solitude and silence. Thanks for your visit and comment, Caren. Keep trying.

As the song says " Silence is Golden" I like this poem. :)

Echoing D.M's comment, it is in the deepest silence that one can truly listen and hear. Well conceived and well penned, Line! :) gw

Nice, only in the silence can you hear it, the beat of yours and every heart.
