The silence has filled the dawn
As emptiness inhabits the room
There’s a hollow curtain of serenity
And a thought sinks into nothingness
I sensed a quiet grasp of contentment.
In my solitude, I reviewed my thoughts
Maybe there is something there I can find
In my distinct bareness, I re-created my visions
Maybe there is somewhere that I can see
Yet, a blank canvas is what I set my eyes on.
I stared past the whiteness from a frame
Maybe I can fill the void with a speck
I looked deeper through its pale fabric
Maybe I will notice a trail of fragments
But all I can seize is a glimpse of shade.
From the shade, I drew a streak of colour
From the streak, I sketched the element of wonder
From the sketch, I drafted the facets of dream
From the draft, I composed the feature of imagination
Then in stillness, a loving gaze lulls me safely back to sleep…whispering “Hush baby hush, you’re safe.”
