The Breath of Silence


Eyes closed
Skin soft, warmed in the hushed rhythm of life
Fingers miniature, curled in perfect symmetry
Face unscripted, unlined by life
Silent, sleeping, resting
The hushed cadence of breath
Chest rising, the noiseless expansion of welcome
Greets life – the gift silently given
In the silence of your sleep
In your soundless breathing
The gift of life
Uncurling quietly, wordlessly grows
