White noise
And silent silhouettes
Singing
And dancing
In silence synching breath
With the wind
And steps with mother earth
An intricate ceremony
To the sound of,
Nothing,
Dancing with invisible steps
Under low hanging trees
Hanging as if to get a better look at,
Nothing
Shadows prancing about
Giggling with unfathomable,
Silence
Picking up there pace
Stepping around a roaring fire
Reaching up to the sky
As if to dance with the moon
And dance with,
Nothing
Sing with us
They beckon
Gesturing with unseen arms
And calling to me
With unheard voices
I must follow them
I must follow,
Nothing
They sit
On their boulders
Placed naturally
In their unnatural positions
Placed to protect
Like a mighty fortress protecting,
Nothing
And I stand here
Watching and listening
Like a lone sentinel
Sent to watch over them
And to truly observe,
Nothing.
