Home / Silence

Silence

The tree lifts
branches to
The One
Beyond all noise of naming.
Snow drifts down silence,
Melts into earth,
Disappears.
Clouds wrap hushed grey cloaks
Around our clamor;
Stilling even loud ambassadors
Of death.

Silence has the last word—
No word at all, but hum:
spiral galaxies,
chanting
Ommmm….
Beloved child of earth
I AM for you.
Come   Home.
