Silence

Jordy’s Streamings

Silence

Standing solitary within a stone crypt

Seasons pass as the water rises and retreats

Our hands cupped in prayer as we breath in the script

Lifetimes spent in humble obedience, discrete

Funny how the sound of silence reverberates

Seemingly against stone enclosures and puddles

How can I stare at you as grey and celebrate?

Two dimensionally, confined, a brain muddled

Through stillness, prayer and listening in silence

Penetrating walls, and permeating water

Two become multidimensional resonance

Breaking free of confinement, both our spirits soar

Movement in present time, camouflaged as if stone

Signposts as reminders for our journey homeward

In silence, in memoriam, your heart, my own

I look at your cupped hands and see flowing waters
