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
