I know and you know

The words we cannot say.

Like embryonic droplets

Suspended, in cumulus clouds.


They conjugate in anticipation,

The nouns and the verbs.

Yet stand silent and awkward,

In deciding which adverb to choose.


I love…… I adore….I worship…..

Then the rain clouds converge once again.

A drenching flash-flood leaves us speechless,

With feelings that no words can explain.


I know you’re listening….

For words you cannot read.

Sometimes, silence speaks….

Louder than any words can.
