Cry out your voice, bitter signs of summer!
This time is your time to cry,
This time I listen only for joys,
And set my quiet reverence heard
Under starry sky and stillness night
This wisdom of silence
My hushed sanctuary of being
Glowing pond shimmering in moonlight
Soothing to place my cares at rest
Like you, reflections of life
Elusive majesty placed against
Taking time as others rush by
Real Peace, inner escapable serenity?
Yet another discovery
Underneath this agitation
Awaits tranquility and depth we cannot reach
But waiting silently...
