In Silence The Secrets Speak...

There is a channel between voice and presence,
a way where information flows.

In disciplined silence
 the channel opens.

With wandering talk,
 it closes.

Version by Coleman Barks
Unseen Rain
Threshold Books, 1986

There is a thread from the heart to the lips
where the secret of life is woven.
Words tear the thread
but in silence
the secrets

Translation by Azima Melita Kolin & Maryam Mafi
