silence

I throw over my shoulder one pebble
after another, the steady patter
like a chant fills my mind in quietness.

Words recede from the text,
the blank pages fill with ribs of letters
that devolve into a sheet of muteness.

Silence nudges in  its clamped fist,
my heart expands turning elastic.
The sky pours in first, then the sea.
