One Silent Summer Night!


Recommended Posts

Before the sun was up he had opened a window.

Birds, insects, dogs, and cars from far away

were making sounds in his silent summer night.


The water was slipping into his throat in this naked silence.

The countryside was asleep like every other night.

But tonight, I took his eyes

to look through his window, to hear the dogs while

everyone was sleeping, even he, now, while

I give lyrics to this sound of the night during my clear, chilly morning.


Everyone else is asleep, and we love the silence around us

with just dogs barking far away and birds so near my window.


Before the sun comes up

he hears the sounds of the night.

Birds, insects, dogs, and far away cars

are all that matter in this silent night.

Aleksandra, you capture the feel of a wakeful summer night and combine it with the longing and sense of shared existence unique to everone who has ever loved and known the pain of separation. The kind of love in which the self is lost in an awareness of Us-ness.


Thank You,

- Dave

hi aleks you know i love your poetry. i am rereading and have a few things to say my friend. you are so deep with your words as per usual (always). falling in love is a beautiful thing. but unless you give a 1000 percent expecting nothing in return it falls a part quickly.
