The silent sonnet

                                                aching chasm

When I introduced this poem to my seminar group, there was much discussion about whether it is meant to be read aloud or not. The word slient being used implies that it should. The idea of the blank space is for the reader to bring their own interpretation to the poem. Silence can say so much when it says nothing at all. I have used the 'ch' 'k' sound for aching and chasm to echo each other to signify how silence can be resounding.
