dVerse Quadrille #46

A Too Brief Moment

Did you listen
to morning dew glisten,

alas
did you hear my footfall,
shoeless, crunching grass.
Ask yourself when you last
heard silence.

Last night we stood
in Leicester Square, where
fairy-lights dazzled the air,
and I caught your still shadow
next to mine.

  5. Love the way you talk about silence… I almost felt that in the second stanza that you can find silence where you least expect it.
