Silence

Silence, unmoved and rising,

Silence, unmoved and sheltering,

Silence, unmoved and permanent,

Silence, unmoved and brilliant,

Silence, broad and immense like the Ganga,

Silence, unmoved and increasing,

Silence, white and shining like the Moon,

Silence, the Essence of Siva.

- Sivavakkiyar
