SILENCE


Silence has leaves
Silence has ears, it has
A dawn trapped in a square
The streets have no messengers
The houses have wrapped up
Scattered dreams

The fingers do not touch
The sea has no sails
Silence is within the crystal or without
A fruit hangs in the space

His face has been pointing to one direction
Behind him it has been the silence of a forest
A mirror is thin yet bottomless
The fading moon as floating ice in a glass

The book with its arms spreading out
Has stopped on a certain page
- that story has ceased to tell

and the look in his eyes
Is like this city, entirely halted
Like its love, completely washed away
by a severe storm

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
