A Broken Silence

1 Aug

Between the sounds in the
softspeaking bubbling water
that I heard in the darkness
lapping magically in the night.
She culled the silence between
us with a delicate grace and
slightly nervous fingers.

With a joy both simple and
unspoken she smiled at me
even as celestial motors
gnawed away at the foam
and spray upon the shore.
Animal sounds suddenly
arose from a chill morning
fog, two starshine bodies
as the sun slowly turned
the sky to orange.
