One Year Ago Today: Into My Stillness

Shhhhh. . .
put your hand
on my trembling heart
listen into my silence
midnight blue velvet
reach into my stillness
deeper than you have ever dared
gently touch my silver waters
undisturbed in eternal privacy
your fingertip first ripple
on crystalline surface

Shhhhh. . .
can you hear a murmur
a whisper
a sigh?
the quiet voice within me
that softly rises
singing an ancient song
of longing
of ache
of homecoming

Shhhhh. . .
rest your head
upon my breast
my skin warm silk
beneath your cheek
let your breath
fall into step with mine
closer than we have ever been
to peace on earth
all else falling away
there is only us
drifting together on the edge
of waking dream
