Silence In The Trees

I observed a moment of silence
Studied it closely as it eased
its way through a copse of
barren birch trees
Soundless
like a stalking lioness
Its hue an intoxicating
shade of azure blue
It had belonged to someone
I knew by the faint odor of
grief still clinging
I called to it but it
knew it did not belong
with me

Silence and Shadow

Silence and shadow
hold all that is essential
for a soul to know
yet the propensity of man
is to avoid them both
Preferring what is easily seen
over the noiseless source
of all things
stumbling drunkenly
through this chaotic dream
