From the Silence

 

From the silence

there came voices

 

from where the Sun

cast its golden light

shadows formed

that were always among us

 

where there was once meaning

there is now confusion

 

where there was serenity

there is now

electricity’s violence

 

we are now

open to the storm

 

our sanctuaries

may not prevail

against such a wind

when voices batter

our stoic last stand

 

our thoughts drift

to where the Sun falls

 

then stars will rise

***
