Silence Falling

Dusk fell tonight
and as it fell
it shattered
the illusions of the day
as deep emotion
became the only interplay
of need

The moon is just past full and waning
yet still a golden orb in starry skies
if only these dark clouds of gray
would fade away for just a while
we all might see her smile
gently, even lovingly upon us all

Yet here
within the lateness of an hour
her silent, salient power
in silence streams
and brings the dreams
that echo just behind
the mind of day

turning storm clouds to a mist
of poignant energy
wise enough to free
soul and spirit to contrive
a living lullaby

Sweet, the sound
of silence ringing round
as we let go the cares of day
and allow ourselves to dance and play
once more within the dream we need
to make reality . . .
