Chapters Of Silence

The vow aches to overfill
silence to overwhelm

leave the fire and your book
let’s step out tonight
and stand all ear and eye
in our shack entrance
by lantern light

far from the nearest city
in a gentle storm of snow

hold your breath
still your heart

an owl's muffled
mouseless question
spruce-hidden flies

every falling lightly
crystal feather
landing sighs.

from the Pliades
from the skies.
