In a Moment of Calm Reflection

Light Falls Gently

In a moment of calm reflection
and utter muteness,
light fell gently
on the broken spaces
of my heart wet with
the innocence of the rain
and there I found beauty, truth and rest.
And I got misty-eyed
as I slowly walked away
along with the lonely and weary whispering voice
of the winter wind.
The pigeons were silent.
