In Silence

The slow descent of leaves

Turned red and gold

The fading of colors

In memories of old

The stars on a moonless night

The mountains in place

The caress of the breeze

The gentle rain on my face

The burning of the lamp

The circle of light

The hope that gives wings

To the falcon in flight

The knife of the butcher

The rosary of the priest

My empty wine cup

My mind’s slain beast

The falling of tears

The baring of hearts

The longing to be whole

Of all broken parts
