Silence Speaks Volumes
come from shelves,
vie for attention –
snatches of fiction whisper –
expectations, prejudice, mocking bird, charlotte;
metaphor purrs from poetry,
truths, instructions, explanations.
This place might be life changing
where space and time dance to different tunes
small cues become ideas
ideas explode into words
and promise fill cold afternoons,
where voices are soft, reverential
and silence speaks volumes.
