silent moment

there is a stillness in the air
and in the land
this day

a crispness
in this valley between seasons

earlier I bundled up
to walk deep into the woods
to stand
among the quiet standing

leaves rained down
and landing

it was as if the land
was being soaked
with silent tears

and I thought of those
who cry alone
in the night

and I prayed for arms
to come 'round

a shoulder
to lean on

a hug

a wordless touch .........
