Silence pt.18


if I could extract the words
and leave only the squeak of strings…
between strumming fingers,
acoustically leave only the warbled
I’d be left with the sound of waves,
between the rolling roar
on a wet land horizon
at twilight before blue becomes black…
I’d stand perfectly still
in this place between me
and galaxies…
and still, I’d wait for a million years,
let the sky fill with glitter
and a smirking sliver…
Being Beautiful
in this place between me
and inner-space,
both conscious and not conscious


***inspired by the song “stars n galaxies” by AKDial
