Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||

Silence - an exchange

When the heart is silent,
it says something,
when the mind is silent,
it says nothing.
Words are the vehicle of the mind,
silence is the vehicle of the heart.

- Osho

Silence slept in the coffin.
The cold and the darkness
was stifling...
These days Silence
hangs around the tombstone.
She loves to sit on it
and feel the gentle breeze
on her hair.

- Nuzhat

Words unsaid...
two pairs of eyes
in infinite conversation.

- Raamesh

The longer you interact,
the words get leaner,
often drying up.

- Max

a possessive lover,
peeps through her eyes.

- Alaka

Silence —
the betrayal of the innocent
by the innocent.

- Raamesh

Beautifully unsaid,
fertile silence
in progress.

- Bala

a welcome requiem
for moribund lovers.

- Nuzhat

Silence, a loyal friend
who speaks volumes and cares
in times of need.

- Chaithra

sits comfortably
on a pile of fallen leaves.

- Nuzhat

Fertile silence
is a fresh take
on pregnant pause.

- Sarat

Silence is the primordial broth
from which universes spring...
perhaps dissolve back in time.

- Max

It seems there are
many kinds of silence.
Still there could be
silence - silence.

- Renjan
