to feel a moment

of all moments

   echoing descent

 to draw close

to draw back

    to forever seek

                     an end to all beginnings

              the frail failings

of words

                  luring the silence

Birds

 

to hear their notes

 

to learn their pitch

tone

 

to roll out through their audible heights

 

weightless

 

 

thoughtless

 

 

to hum on sonorous waves

 

to flutter on melodies

 

 

to listen

listen to their sounds

 

 

to listen

 

 

 

so close to silence
