THE SONG OF THE SILENCE

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

 

A glittering diamond
shines
through a misty veil
and describes
wavering shadows through my heart.

 

A million names and faces
call to me across the years
beyond time,
their whispering voices
lost on a soft and steady wind.
And then the silence
becomes a song unto itself,
teaching wisdom and patience,
solving puzzles
unlocking doors
speaking volumes-
streaming water and color and light…
beyond description
beyond love
beyond meaning…
