The Sound of Silence

Does silence have a “sound?”

Silence is the sound of peace that has replaced tumultuous storms.

Silence is the sound of televisions turned down, cell phones muted, and inboxes closed

Silence is the sound of a mind at rest

Silence is the sound that makes space for other sounds to enter that we are normally unable to hear.

Silence is the sound of tranquility and inner strength and peace

Silence is the sound of birds tweeting, wind blowing through trees, and water glistening with the rays of the sun

The sound of silence enables me to pay attention well enough to get a glimpse of a rainbow that appeared for a brief moment of time and then disappeared after having the chance to capture camera shots

Silence is the sound of a God who is present though seemingly absent

The sound of silence is being captivated by the beauty of the sun rising and setting

Silence is experienced as I pause to glance at sun kissed trees swaying gently in the wind.

Silence is the ability to hear God’s voice above the noise of the world and the chaos of our own souls

Silence is the sound that my soul experiences now….
