A seeker of silences


A seeker of silences am I, and what treasure have I found in silences that I may dispense with confidence?          If this is my day of harvest, in what fields have I sowed the seed, and in what unremembered seasons?          If this indeed be the hour in which I lift up my lantern, it is not my flame that shall burn therein.          Empty and dark shall I raise my lantern, And the guardian of the night shall fill it with oil and he shall light it also.          - "The Prophet" Kahlil Gibran
