              Silent Meaning             The word not spoken              goes not quite unheard.              It lingers in the eye,              in the semi-arch of brow.              A gesture of the hand              speaks pages more than words,              The echo rests in the heart              as driftwood does in sand,              To be rubbed by time              until it rots or shines.              The word not spoken              touches us as music              does the mind.
