Time & Light

Long I worked, learning to
Silence the myriad thoughts
and hungry fears of every moment.

Now the light flows in through my skin
every time I remember to say yes.

I asked the silence to show me a mirror in in which I might see myself, but
the moment it appeared, it was empty.

The sky changes from light to dark and back again, the night sky grows brighter
then darkens again.
Flowers and snow dance in and out
of meadows and sidewalks.

Days fly by, and I am unsure.
If time has abandoned me.

Watching peacefully I wonder, if my life will be over in a single moment or last forever,
If silence is detachment
or unity.

Now it is night again and I will sleep.
