“There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.” Linda Hogan

By Elvira

HE spoke to Moses.
HE spoke to all the
bards —            tales
Warnings
Telling us truths we do not want
to Hear.

The Birds hear, and fly.
The rabbits hear, and go.
But we, in our vanity —
would rather
hear the voices
of mendacity
because it is easier and
prettier.

So, only in the Final Silence —
we will hear
the Truth
For we have nothing else
to rob us
of the Word.
