silence

Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #15 Soliloquy no Renga "the dust of stars"


silence
the dust of stars
shining radiance

© Jane Reichhold

filling the corners 
of the empty chapel

like the desert
the emptiness rings
in no ears
till the single mouse
comes seeking a home

moonlight
creeping quietly across
ancient dust
grains of sand pouring almost
silent through an hourglass


owl takes flight
swooping between trees
leaves flutter
with silent wings
the predator listens

ill intent?
mis-steps of the mind?
words blathered
wisdom searches 
for a worthy ally

a sound
in the light of stars
shining
tiny feet scamping
covered in stardust
