“Louder than Silent Words”
I am writing this poem to broadcast my silent words.
Deeper than spring sex in the midnight rain,
Stronger than The Valley of the Kings,
Your tenderness restored the broken cheek of the moon.
I am writing this poem to give a voice to my deepest feelings.
Hidden in the bosom of the Nile River,
Stretching tight across the porch of the heavenly sanctuary,
Your kindness calmed the impatient wave and quieted the storm.
I am writing this poem to build a room where my soul belongs.
Gentle like a winter night in October,
Covering the highest point of the Himalayas,
Your heart is not a closed border to me.
