Then The Silence Fell
You don’t talk with me anymore-
– we were friends once upon a time
discussed the fate of the world
in midnights moving with the flow
of our shared thoughts…
… soul-friends, I thought
spiritually connected through the eons, you said-
– was it merely a game?
We spoke of love in all its ardent subtleties
nuances in pastel shades, why did they fade to grey?
And in the process, so too friendship faded.
Then the silence fell;
How dense that fog of silence now!
I sometimes hear your voice
etched in words of sorrow for this Earth we both love…
… was it not that love which brought us together
poetic passion capturing love of Earth and
lyrics of emotive turn?
And yet you melted into the silence
voicelessly relinquishing the varied loves we shared-
– such echoes fill my midnights now
the hopes we fostered… global healing we aspired …
love of life and each other, love of Earth and dirt and things growing;
Silence- like a death of precious moments…
… do you think of me still?
Are you happy… fulfilled….
– or am I too late to say… I miss you
in midnights that once flowed
with the rhythm of our shared thoughts;
