Silence

Amid

their many words

one wonders if those

who aspire to lead know silence

For without silence

even brilliances

collideĀ 

 

Then

without thought

words pile up on words

as though by them truth is built

or conviction constructed

Emperors stand

naked!

 

Silence

is the gentle womb

in which is conceived

the wisdom to say much with little

To mean more by less

Yes even to do

truth

  1. Ask a silent man like me! I do not know if I say much with little. Sometimes it is smaller than little – just nothing :)
