dear stone

February 15, 2013

 

the sun had left to light its home,

i swallowed the air with silence

of all the nights to be alone,

how had life lost all its vibrance?

 

you spoke to me, dear stone,

you did, i know you did,

you did.

you hushed my weeping,

caught in sleeping,

gentle whispers warmed my breath

you spoke to me, you did,

i know you did 

and i knew not of death

 

embraced by your indifference,

            your granite glory, holy rock

my voice was timid, weary

                        yours was not

 

o you proud pillar of destitute

was it you who moved me?

or was it the wind that shook

those filial fingers sprouting from your mount?

i ask you, no i beg, please tell me

dear slab of stone in frenzy

           

how is it that you spoke to me?

no eyes, no lips, no nose to breathe

and yet you gazed upon my wallows

and yet you knew my soul was hallow

and yet you broke the spine of winter’s back

to open eyes of life i’ve lacked

 

you spoke to me that night, you did

and yet you said nothing
