In the silence

In the silence

In the silence
thought waves echo ripples on the ocean of time
and in the darkness
the moon seeps through the clouds
like a faded memory

The faces of our ancestors keep watch
as we cross the horizon
of a new world

This realm of vast wilderness
and arid consciousness
aches for the flow of life
like the barren desert thirsts for rain after years of drought...

And when the sky cracks with thunder
the great spirit weeps
and is born again
in the fertile soils of the Earth

No soul shall perish,
yet we mourn the loss of our beloved
and rejoice in the beauty of creation

As the wheel of life turns
we see its path
only once it has moved on...
over the mountains
through the rivers
in the depths of our minds

and in the silence
