Reflections

The Sound of Silence

Silence has a fascination for many people.  In one of his earlier poems Brendan Kennelly wrote  "once I was the heartbeat of the world I am an outcast now".  Meister Eckhart told us that the "nearest thing to God is silence".  We all think we know what silence is but there are several different understandings of what it means.   

For one person to say "I was silent" for another person may mean "I was stunned", "I didn't react", "I didn't respond" or 'I held my peace'. Silence can evoke fear in some and awe in others.  Many think of silence as the absence of sound.
