After a Quote by William Penn

© Glebstock

“True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.” —William Penn’s Advice to His Children (c. 1699)

Have you ever
met somebody
who carries silence
with them,
in the tilt
of her head,
listening keenly
to absolutely nothing,
or in his very voice
a chamber
of echoing gaps
between his words?
