Still now

The silence speaks to me

Drowning out the sounds
Of the vehicles racing by
Drawing me closer
To the silence inside

Both surrounded and seeded
By stillness seeking to speak
Images floating nearby
Almost out of arms reach

A light shines brighter
A candle in the deep

Tears flood the eyes
Rinsing old memories clean
She still smiles out
From the vaults within
Echoes growing louder
The past rushes in

Stillness gives pause

And silence recedes
I must return to now
To the buzz of rushing wheels
