A Silence

We cannot hear the light, the casting 

of shadows or the rays that follow

fair morning’s rise; it lifts from slumber 

and settles in a silence beyond quiet, 

startling in the thunderous hush of a shaft 

of splendor that takes our breath away 

as the world declares the clearing of night 

and dawning brilliance in the promise of day.
