#416 – “the silence of dreams”

“the silence of dreams”


I scavenge

for direction


for relief


through my prayers

in search of



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?
