echoes


silence3

days, weeks and months pass,
Repaying a lifelong debt, in a trance.
A chance encounter with one’s own reflection,
Is reassuring knowledge of another acquaintance,
Perhaps the fruit has ripened in its branch,
That it hath become a target to stones,
The echoes of silence take their time in ringing,
As though someone called out in afterthought.
