Sylvie M. Miller - SILENCE

Silence is a brook humming beneath the snow
where willows grow

Silence is the thud at night
of fruits on the frozen soil
Silence is the spinning din of starlings,
the sweeps of crows
on top of the drowsy garden,
the slight song of the samovar,
the sky over the frosted pane

But then silence can also be
this old and moldy ladder
leaning against a barred exit

Silence can be
an entire life of howling
at the door

Sylvie M. Miller
