Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Spillway

Give me silence
without a hum -
no words trafficking,
highjacking, jamming
the quiet begging to heal like
balm.

Give me silence
floating like a feather
unworried upon gentle swells
obeying the quarter moon's
tidal ebb and flow,
unhurried.

Give me silence
and teach me to wait  -
for without a spigot controlling
release I spill brokenness
like a stricken, breached
dam.
