Speaking in Silence.

“I closed my mouth and spoke to you in a hundred silent ways.”

— Rumi

I love this quote, not only because it is a beautiful idea, but also because it sparks an interesting idea for writing… Would it be possible to write a scene where two people hold an entire conversation without speaking a single word? I will have to try it out and see what happens.

If anybody has written or read a scene like this, I’d love to see it! Comment with a link or a book recommendation if you have one.
