listen
as silence –
translation becomes
sound to the stutter
of once blushing lips

waiting
the tell-tale
signs of confession
breath into life
such as this

given to promise
one language to keep
sweet as the heart
to divine

longing shall linger
as songs to the wind
or prayers
on the tongue –
for a time

blest in beginning
without thought for verse
or voices to snare
each regret

echoes
though quiet
shall ring on for days
made louder
by words
never said

. . .
