The Silence in Stone


The silence should be firstly sought outside and only afterward to be adopted as your own.

For harder is to become a source of silence, being rather accustomed of being an incessant spring of words.

And the silence brought from outside makes yourself to become out of you as a speaker.

From outside, the silence is dug out of minor things, too weak of becoming objects of our loud discourses, though ‘mighty is the silence in stone’ (Trakl). It shows up, not so easy, from the minor facts of life in the short time they go away and until being replaced from other minor facts. Also, from the short lives of others, so ‘the ghost of the one who died young silently appeared in the room’ (Trakl). Also, from those who are too insignificant to claim a place in the spoken story of one’s life.

All these minor things come from the unspoken world overwhelm the speaker and menace him to recognize he is in all of them, as a non-speaker.

And who could confess to himself as being a non-speaker? Even the logic opposes to this.

Again, only from outside one can be driven to view himself as a non-speaker. Then, his words are regained with the fragility and insignificance of the new born who silently partakes in the unspoken world.
