Requiem in Quiet Minor

Has the world ever been this silent?
A collective held breath, a quiet murmur of fear and heartbreak?
I feel their shivers as tremors in the earth
And taste the salt in their tears as it falls from op’d clouds
There are things that can only be heard in silence
Like the weight of the earth
Velocity pushing together
The thoughts of humans and nature alike
Abounding in their own worlds
Separate but desperate to connect
With one another
To hear
The steady unassuming heartbeat of a child
Or the flicker of a spirit flame as it gutters out
The silence reveals it all doesn’t she.
