Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

she spoke of this


just a few months ago
she spoke of loss
of stumbling and falling

nature doesn't call 911
it just dies for you
you can pick up the pieces
or leave them in place
to nurture the soil

she said to me
"just you wait, it's coming"
 i'm old enough to believe her
it comes again and again

and then the star bursts
and the fingers of the trees are candles
burning in frozen white fire

i remember a few months ago
she spoke of this
