Silence – A Poem

A sea of calmness
Washing waves of placid beauty,
Of silence,
Over a mind,
In need of cleansing.

A beauty
Beyond words,
Is found in that stillness,
That impresses itself,
Onto a mind
In need of such moulding.

A fruitful desert,
Whose limits
Give meaning,
To a mind,
That needs defining.

Like a persuading friend,
Inviting the discovery,
Of a hidden realm,
Locked away,
In a mind,
In need of inspiring.

The unbinding emptiness,
The calming excitement,
Knows what it wants to tell me.
I listen in silence.
