Day 20: Translating Silence

Translating Silence

“I never knew words could say that”

  • Kevin Spracher

I stopped writing letters
before the digital made it quaint
always misunderstood
held accountable
for things not
said my

excusable lament
I didn’t mean
to imply I never meant
questions of meaning

a victim of unspoken
intentions until I stopped
paying lipservice to our
Sojourner/Wanderer natures
feeling it in our bones hollow:

White spring flowers
past glassed window
holds in abeyance
leaden skies soon
will glisten wet
and smell of
mammalian flesh
attracting exclusive 

Travelers all
from Shore to Shore
translating Silence.
