One Single Impression: Echo

Air across the water:
A wave.

Voice across time:
An echo.

Stillness, silence:
No story,
No conversation
Between then and now.

Troubled waters are a blessing;
They lap against cold stillness to say

We are here. We are alive.

We are alive.

Breath across water:

Call it a beginning
Call it a story

Perhaps a new

Word. A new word:

Yours. Mine.

Feel your pulse.
Feel the echo.

  12. A really beautiful poem, Sandy. I like these images, which are so soft, so undefined and at the same time full of feeling.

  13. I loved this and I completely understand. I feel the same with trees. When I look at their swaying crowns and the sound the leaves make in the wind, I feel what you describe here...
