sunday post: silence

Sunday, July 8: Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post challenge for this week is Silence, the relative or total lack of audible sound. By analogy, the word silence may also refer to any absence of communication, even in media other than speech.  Silence is also used as total communication, in reference to non verbal communication and spiritual connection. Silence also refers to no sounds uttered by anybody in a room and or area.

Here’s my entry for Silence.  These are the temples of Angkor in Cambodia, enveloped in silence by the forces of nature.

Ta Prohm is a temple built from 1186 by Jayavarman VII.  Ta Prohm is the place you always see in photographs of the Angkor temples.  It is in a severe state of ruin and nature has overtaken it.  Trees grow over its decaying walls, their roots strangling the stone structure like giant boa constrictors.  Moss and lichen grow all over the bas-reliefs.  Shrubs sprout from rooftops and balconies.  Jumbles of intricately carved stone blocks clog corridors.  It’s like a scene from Indiana Jones; even Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider had parts filmed here.

the tendrils of nature silently entwine themselves around the history of man
