I Am Silent

By Michael Cunliffe

I am silent,
I withdraw.
I do this, and I do this
as meditation, as contemplation –
yesterday, today, tomorrow.
I find my space,
my secret hollow,
my cave to hide
from a million voices
that talk, talk
endlessly
with nothing to say.
I speak less,
I speak when I have something to say,
otherwise I am silent,
I am calm,
I contemplate
silence.
