Treasure Island

Marshall Gass


Silence


as slow as the heart beats
in a void of no feeling
so does life breathe
in a space with no air

even as the sounds emanate
and the echo returns
from the void of months of waiting
so does understanding

i sit here
under this atomic tree
lost in a whirlwind of explanations
unable to tune in.

stilled by the seeds of contemplation
my mind finds a new river
that froths in its fury of journeys
and settles into a calm stream.

i wait here for the oceans solace
and the escape from the turbulence
of knowing the words of the world
and the silence that resides in me.

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
