I kept returning

To compose a reply

But contrived nothing so poetic

As silence

  1. Nothing so poetic
    as silence.

    Yes.

    You have yet again reminded me of a quote:

    “It is the job of poetry to clean up our word-clogged reality by creating silences around things.”
    –Stephen Mallarme

    …and this you have done here. A moment of pause.

    I admit to sometimes judging people based on their level of comfort with silence. It is still sometimes shocking to me how many people can get really quite uncomfortable with silence.

    1. Got it – that is a nice quote! At times even the rhythm of poetry can be like silence to me, because it isn’t really like talking. Thanks for reading 🙂
