We count the broken lyres that rest
Where the sweet wailing singers slumber.


Silence runs and
lopes and scampers in the midst
of magnolia’s tears.
The birds don’t fly
but ride in the ever longing wings
of silence.
They violently skew
past the fallen Fall leaves,
past the kaleidoscopic trees.
They run from
the whistle of the train and
the white puffs of smoke.
They run from us.

This means a lot to me - thanks! Yeah I wanted to show how silence, even though it's something that you cannot grasp or hold, exists. The paradox of how something untangible and as invisible as silence can be such a lively wave in many situations witnessed in the world today. Thank you so much :)
