"When all quiets down”

Updated: Jan 24


When all quiets down

I tell you

here the curtain lifts, silence

The earth whispers

the undying melody, sameness

like a call to dreams and dares

and over again, overnight bells

Injured notes like ghosts

through the prism of time

past ages

Simple

To realize is to know

to feel beyond the mask

and others will miss it

in bliss

Not me, you know I’ll fly by

nor I’ll shelter within

Its notes were playing all along

chanting upwards and inward

Unrelenting

in the center soul of mine

muted by the wind forces

The unbranded noise traced

through daily acts of null.
