for the silence is no longer

for the silence is no longer

the haunting sound
of an Autumn Rain
pitter pattering
upon the sparse canopy
of the wood

leaves are falling
and a small gust gathers
and brings them
my way
serving to remind me
of movement

all things are connected

the day is overcast
for they told us
a Storm was coming

Supermarket shelves
like Ghost Towns
people love to expect disaster
there are no aisles that offer
the quenching of my thirst
unless i wish to drink
Pickle Juice

there is no bread
leavened or not
to be eaten
unless you are a believer

the Trees are in the audience
rooted in the exhibition
creation offers
they are clapping
and Brother Wind
dances amongst this
standing room only crowd

the temperature is dropping
only to remind us
it is time for a scene change
as we go in to another act

i took time for this intermission
for i am a Playwright
and sometimes Critic
and i wanted you to know
before you spend your money
what to expect
as the Storm approaches

for the silence is no longer
