Our Silence


Our Silence

- John Guzlowski (U.S.A.)

My silence and your silence

speak a language

we learned long ago

in a world where silence

moved the waves

and every sparrow

flew on wings of silence

into our eyes


And every word

we learned to speak

is part of a prayer

connecting us

to all the words

spoken by all people




This silence and these words

invented love


Taught us to whisper


Taught us

To open our eyes


Taught us

To enter the woods

And fields

And learn the meaning

Of everything
