At the edge of sound

Poetry: Black picture

Silence is absolute—
for every word spoken, every
prayer fervently whispered, and every curse
flung out to the Wide
is met with the enormity of Silence.
It says nothing, yet all sounds
arise from it, and all sounds die in it.
It says nothing,

for all is, as is.
