Within the Wind’s Silent Spaces


[An older poem on the silence theme. Photo is a simple collage of a cloudscape and a seascape.]

Within the Wind’s Silent Spaces

wind waves in trees
breaking, ebbing, breaking
within silent spaces
an ocean of stillness

mind opening out
a bird call, repeating
within silent spaces
word mind slowing

dry leaves fall autumn
litter rustle, branch creaking
within silent spaces
soundless veils around the dying

my dog raises his ears,
something there, beyond sight
within the wind’s spaces
silence soft as womb water
