In Praise of Silence


He sings a song of praise

glorifying the power of silence

as ravens gather in the rain


The stillness of shadows invite

spirits to contemplate new ways

to travel these twisted roads and paths


And as those birds become restless

beneath clouds too heavy in the sky

he sings a song of more


Not forgetting this monochrome melancholy

meant to insulate against tantrums of the impatient

is both melody and cure


Embracing the leverage of introspection

lingering in the absence of the daily hullabaloo

he serenades the weary
