meadowlark

to you I am a mystery   even to myself
my affection I hide in the flash of my verse
my passion   in the thunder of my stillness
but my heart is consumed with longing
the flame of your being devours it
when I speak   do you hear me truly?
when I fall silent   do you sing my song?
to myself and to you I am a mystery
a meadowlark ascending at break of day
a meadowlark that sings your silences
