FLEETING SLIVERS OF SILENCE

Flowing from me in the intimacy of the moment
Is the force that lives within the shared silence.
A silence alive with the compassion we seek;
A sliver of timelessness poetically fleeting.

Language lives at the boundary of this existence,
An utterance of the inner self seeking a home.
Without its engagement, an impossible wholeness;
A wholeness without a journey to freedom.

Sitting there, reflecting, gives connection without.
Drawing from the deep inner tribal hurts we share
Precious feelings gasp and seek air to breath;
Often suppressed keeping selfhood complete.

Connect, connect, connect again silent truth
Release the free flowing utterances of my heart.
Gush, break, become complete in our words;
Find and repair the wounds we make each day.

Heal, heal, and heal again: Oh, silent truth speak.

Precious feelings gasp and seek air to breath;
Often suppressed keeping self-hood complete.
