Song of Silence

by Rula Shin

Revelation, Oh Rose!
Subtle as
Your candor
Gentle grandeur

Fragility blooms
Compelling the
Mighty Earth to
Shudder at
Simple Delights

Silence caresses
The petals of her
Withering Heart
Lulling to sleep
The essence of
Life unmeasured

In death she awakens
Soft whispers gathered
By her ears with ease
As raindrops beg
To ripple lakes
Smooth as glass
Refuse to break

Stillness IS as
Silence grows
You bloom again
Oh mighty Rose!

This has such a perfect ageless quality to it.

"Stillness IS as Silence grows." Love this line. The renewing of Life is beautifully captured here.
