The Deferred Silence

 

At times
we're too full
to react on
actions instantly,
Deferred silence
follows some delayed
noises,
when a car
is hit by
an on coming
vehicle,
the witness
needs a few
seconds
to analize
the accident
and call police
for help
to handle the
problem,
the interval
between
occurances
and
responses
is like
ozone
newness
to random
aftermath
or aftershock..

It is amazing how our minds react so slowly to trauma or other shocking occurances. And yet it is only seconds in time that feel like hours. Great write!
