Silence

SilenceRAYMOND SIGIMET

Ssssssh! 
Silence
Listen 

Can you hear the soil?  
Can you hear the trees? 
Can you hear the leaves?

The falling leaves
The sprouting shoots 
The condensing mist

Are they breathing? 
Are they whispering? 
Are they talking? 

What are they talking about?
Are they whispering about the wind
and the rain that comes with it

What are they talking about? 
Are they breathing out the night
and the creatures that walk in it?

What are they talking about?
Are they mourning the leaves
as the wind tosses them in the air?

What are they whispering about?
Are they whispering about me
and my insignificance to them?

Ssssssh!
Silence
Listen 

They are breathing 
They are whispering
They are talking 
They are predicting 
My impending end
