Only Silence Remains






Early light
flares in the fog.
The wide river
keeps gliding by.

Patient. Persistent.

Waiting for words
to emerge from
the quiet current,
I reflect
upon the silence.

Wait. Listen.

Like the veil of vapor
suspended above
the bed of moving water,
I gather
thin thoughts.

Temporary. Transitory.

The Spirit has spoken.
The words evaporate.
Only silence remains.
