A Thread Of Being

Rating: 3.5
How well you speak the language of the rain.
Your mood plays back to me on dusk's blue horn.
Light is unstable as a candleflame,
A thread of being subject to the wind.

Here at the nadir of the failing sun,
Warmth has the substance of October smoke.
It swirls around me with the dying leaves,
Makes song a shadow of more worth than breath.

A gentle landscape as only you can paint Sandra - perfection in chosing the right words each time. Captivating

How beautiful your capture of the fragility and the impermanence “unstable as a candle flame…subject to the wind”.... “at the nadir of the failing sun”....

I tried to pick ou the best line but one is as good as the other. What do we say when confronted with such artistry. I know only one way whicn, I think, is the most appropriate and eloquent: SILENCE. I therefore offer up my silence to this enthralling piece of communication. Take care
