Silent Twilight

soundless evensong
sunlight pursued by darkness
soft-footed shadows

Kim M. Russell, 2018

Birches by Moonlight

My response to Carpe Diem #1386 Silence …

In the first episode of a new theme for this month, ‘Rumi, the mystical poet’, the poem Chèvrefeuille has shared with us is:

Two Days of Silence

After days of feasting, fast.
After days of sleeping, stay awake
one night. After these times of bitter
storytelling, joking, and serious
considerations, we should give ourselves
two days between layers of baklava
in the quiet seclusion where soul sweetens
and thrives more than with language.

© Rumi (taken from The Book of Love)
