I am

I am

Counting the links on a chain,

One gold circle at a time,

The time flooding past, molten

Like the gold that made the links.

I am

A spider weaving her web,

Each leg moving faster than the fly

Who winds herself up, tangled deep

In the gossamer threads I wove.

I am

A mineral compacted in the earth,

Profound resilience proved when hammers

Hit the hard exterior, calling forth a chime

That resounds in my crystalline body.

I am

The silence inside silence,

An absence of sound that vibrates with the note

Unspoken, the word unsaid,

Silence that silences itself.

I am
