#416 – “the silence of dreams”

“the silence of dreams”

 

I scavenge

for direction

dig

for relief

toss

through my prayers

in search of

belief

 

where do they hide,

these songs

that God sings,

these sweet

mossy pathways

toward answer-filled Springs

 

where are the angels

where are the saints

where are the answers

that break these restraints

that hold down the music

and harden the night

and blacken the beauty

that rides the moonlight

 

where do I go

when the grass is all gone

and what’s left are hard sticks

and sharp stones to walk on

 

when the darkness is heavy

and confusion acute

where do I listen

when the spirits go mute

and the silence of dreams

feels so absolute?
