In silence 

In silence I have listened to the music of crickets,
stars whispering from behind the tiptoeing curtains
of clouds, the silver lining moon beams were more
familiar to me than human faces I am surrounded by –
and my heart beats with the pulse of mother nature.
Beneath the swarming of stars at night I have learned
how beautiful the solitude of a man can be and I have
known – the language of the universe in loneliness –
in my solitary confinement…
