‚Äčsilence is the language of the enlightened

 
silence is the dialogue between shadow and shadowed

 
silence is the background radiation enveloping my song
 

silence is the final stage of time's lethal assault
 

silence is the gap between perception and wonder
 

silence is the tear that connects I to thou
 

silence is the last refuge of the divine within me


silence is the glossolalia of love
 

silence is the grace given to resist inanity
 

silence is the marriage bed of communion
 

silence is the final resting place of separation
 

silence is the inner fire of the poet and the saint
 

silence is the never-ending debate between being and nothingness
 

silence is the kumara below the earth
 

silence is the cell division of a fertilised ovum
 

silence is a sunset at Otaki Beach
 

silence is the blue of my daughter's eyes
 

silence is self-expression refined to perfection
