Absorbed in Silence

The door creaks, the window opens

to light and air and what waits.

Geese bark, otter slide into the sea

and I sit beside the water, aging like stone

into rough textured patience.

Quick as hummingbird,

bothersome as goose

I listen now and hear more deeply

the unsaid word, the long lost feeling,

the call of deep rooted trees

in sunlight and darkness.

I range like a swift, gather as a bee

tasting camas in its purple glow.

Absorbed in silence, I hook on

to the great chain of being

and quietly pass through the mystery.
