Based on the painting by Italian artist, Guilia Bandini, C.1887-1890

Trees like olives
with bark hearts
hide me from your view-

only a rooftop
and some windows
peek at me from home.

If I blur my eyes,
the gold of the land
will embrace those same trees-

some sleeping against
the barely blue,
the almost white,
this earth's canopy.

To touch those distant hills,
rounded fruits
that grow so far away-

To sleep in those blue-grey mountains,
peaksof serenity
that call me to their silence-

for silence-
not of words,
but of thoughts,
not of words,
but of grief.
