Who can understand this silence
where only creatures who have tasted its nectar
would seek
to draw out its words
with a gentleness
that we
cannot ever grasp.

They flutter their wings
inside its space
and lift their heads
between the lines,
turning,
circling,
the invisible self
and yet we think too much
giving wings
for the wind.
