SILENCE FALLS

SILENCE FALLS

 

Incantations

Psalms of syntax

Sonnets of dust

Stanzas of the night

Travelers by night, Nocturnes.

Silence.

“Silence, the words ever-moving into foolishness

Fading. The silence prolonged, so secretive of thought”

The Silence Falls.

Love, the, the most difficult of phrases,

The man of this phrase out of phase ~ fragments left of

What’s lost, out of time & out of place.

Silence Falls.

The spirit

Is the future,

The spirit is the flame

By the sea, by the light and by the storm

Returning, perceiving the great wheel turning

A vortex.

The past an abstract sky

The true song thru speech

As the veil will have it

All beauty dropped out of time, out of loneliness

Thru body and mind, soul.

These casualties all things

Becoming

Vox Verbum

Postremus Cantus.

As The Silence Falls

Words, Images Fading

Into history, voices poetry

The song an echo repeating

Into the void.

Tick

Tock

Tick

Tock

Tick

Next exit

To the place where

All our worlds meet

And end

And I will

Meet you there.
