here is your silence

driving home 7

 

here is your silence
in this room
laid out across the tables
in soft golden tones of candlelight
in the pages of closed books
resting now in piles
by my bare feet

here is your silence
wrapped like the amethyst beads
around my wrist
this pulse that we all share
shortening the distance
between us

here is your silence
in this quiet place
of my heart
the night folded into me
until I know longer know
where the night begins and I end
here is where love turns into
the next spiral of life
this is where silence walks

out across one open palm
to the next
held together

my heart to yours
