Silent Minds Give Way to Loud Hearts

You are silent

With those wide set eyes, you move me

How did it happen,

That my heart is loud, but my mind is silent

Your legs move, you run past me

And yet it turns out that in reality you are only walking

How did the silence of the atmosphere around us turn SO silent all of a sudden?

As if we are trapped in a moment that can never leave us,

Where is the loudness that consumes an ordinary day?

Traffic moving and people hastily crossing the streets…

The Babbling of languages in giving everyday directions…

The news that comes on CNN…

China has won 17 gold medals, 5 silver medals, and 5 bronze medals at the 2008 Summer Olympics!
