written circa 1973

Quiet (in three Haikus)

Night sounds begin and light

becomes a shadow of a shadow

As dark isolation settles with a chill.

Breath won’t come. “Don’t go

…Don’t leave me here alone!!” Wandering, lost,

Separate from all but One.

Then quiet comes to rest beside me,

And the crowd from the inner room

Pushes to be free.

One response to “Quiet”
