What Is Silence?

Artwork by Krupa Joshi

What is silence?
Is it a feeling
Is it a thought

Silence is reflecting
And remembering

Silence is pausing
And listening

What is silence?
Is it a feeling
Is it a thought

Silence is understanding
And thinking

Silence is calm
And soft

But most of all it is precious
Like gold
Hard to come by or get
So value it when you have it
