A Being Of Silence - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Culminating in a brief period of sunny haze,
no response or sound emanating from within.

A being of silence formed by life's
tribulations and sorrow.

No longer reachable - the distance created
is much too great.

There are no spans of reversal to de-enter
an orbit of sorrow.
