shouting inside..the mind releases

her lips stay shut

the poison of words trying to find release

now talk to her soul..

finding a way to swallow the words

and put the lump in her throat to rest

staring at the ocean..the waves wash thoughts

silence takes its meaning on her knees

in the sand..

her place in the sun….. now she hears it all

and doing justice to the wind

this miracle of life..

quiets herself

feeling lonely but surrounded 

calmed and centered…

eyes see so much more..

ears feast ..

on these sounds of silence

bearing  gifts

silent dreams holding hands

with the depth of understanding..

gagged sounds fall to the ground..

praising the silent words.. 

she never said..
