Studdering Silence

October 13, 2008
By Taylor Hughes, Warrensburg, NY

Bitter zephyrs dancing
in universal shadows

Smothering peace,
A fatal stillness
smashing luminescent hearts

Harshly radiant
in obscurity suspended
Howls echo in the breeze,
crooning eagles

Shady blossoms, sinister…
motionless dwelling

Mournful cry arises,
amid airy abyss of the night
Droplet falls, jewel of darkness
blade sparkles, the stars

Feathery lips befall
bloody tears and kisses

A mournful smile
Turned to a lovely moment

Light returns
abirds sing once again
