Silent Chatter

Winter Trees
Sounds of silence never end
Bare trees dancing without wind

Star twinkling in the night
Souls prepare for wintry flight

And all the world’s words in song
Like silent chatter they belong

The absence of intended sound
A song for winter’s trodden ground

And quiet hearts in stillness sit
Listening for their momentous split

The lack of faith then believes
The rough edge of stillness grieves

For sounds of silence never end
Springtime gives way and flowers mend
