Winter storm
The indignity of the cold 
Racking the body
Shivering, shaking, falling
On wet patches of ice
You go numb in the heartless
Freezing wind and snow
And blocked by the curtain
Of white you feel you know
You are completely on your own

Silence not as reticence
Or a jealous guarding of truth,
A hedge around hermetic wisdom,
Silence as numbness
All through the long night
