One Single Impression: Rambling

Rambling

too far away too far gone

no trace of what was

no word

no nothing

You have rambled,

Leaving behind
A simple and neat silence
As unnecessary as it is final

In that silence
I have learned to feel something

a trace of what is
something

You have rambled;
I have tuned my heart

To the hum of the air
When it does not move
In that calm before the storm

I contemplate

Rambling.

  7. I don't know what to say today. I first thought of a dog I know named ramber because he came rambling into his families life. I think I like those thoughts best.

  8. So true. People ramble on, as well as the world. So we tune our hearts to hear a hum of voices all talking, wishing to be heard.but the sounds are not words but a resulting hum, too far gone but growing like an ebbing wave, a calm before the storm.
    Wow! Great stuff!:)
