Silence and Music


meditation musicI have not heard silence

more than in music


the hollow of a bell

the harmony of a singer

the puncturing of a drum 


excavates a sanctuary

inside my skull, there I capture 

strains of music that belong

to a realm without sound

desert where silence performs for silence


when I no longer have thirst

I will be able to stay there

a symphony of deafness will congregate

I will hear nothing

but the absence of myself
