Khurshid Davron writes

The strongest scream
A speechless person’s scream
Has the strongest tone.
Imagine, how strong
Is the squall of gravestones…
The most powerful silence
Is not the silence of the eyes,
Neither of the stone nor of the dumb.
The most horrible silence is
When the poet keeps mum.

--Tr. by Azam Abidov
