a moment in silence

i look up from my phone’s screen
and find you smiling at me
asking if you could take a seat with me
here in the shade
speechless, i smile and nod
a glance tells me you’re writing
i open my Bible
and reflect on God’s word
you ask nothing of me
not even my name
but it seems like your silence
tells me so much more than words ever could
my phone beeps
and the moment ends
as i leave you in silence
