Momentary Silence


I try to think of something deep to write,

something meaningful and profound;

Instead silence strikes my pen.

My ego makes no sound.


Silence is an awkward place,

Ego usually goes on.

Perhaps I should honor this moment,

and listen to silence’s song.


No shortage of words, I write up this rhyme,

and forgo the momentary silence;

I share these words  in this poem,

but now, back to quiet’s romance…
