sounds


All was quiet today.
I only heard the sounds 
of my own breathing
a silent, soft inhaling
then a louder
exhale, almost a sigh
as the breath 
left and traveled to
another place.  I know
there were other sounds
of rain and wind and voices
but I shut them all just
 to follow the gasp
and shudder of my own
pant entering my heart
...searching for the
breeze and waiting for the
sound of knowing.

Nice combo, this poem and picture. Perhaps your next book should be called that: "Poems and Pictures."

the sound of silence in words and picture. I've enjoyed both...looking and reading.
