Dark Song

The leaves talk
to the dead and blackbirds
with their hidden ear, mimic
life's motion as shadow.

When I have found
my voice, its quiet self,
I will sing of leaves and birds
from the darkness of my bed.

From there, like wolves
crying through sad, deserted hills,
I'll sing for what I've lost, I'll cry
for you with the mouth of my spirit.
