I whispered your name to the Universe

Silent echoes, butterflies on the wind,

Calling you to me.

Only in softness, gentle as snowflakes,

Fragile and transient

Will the voiceless speak.

Yet into the silence your name flutters,

A feather falling at my feet

From a clear sky.

I hear my voice and listen to my own cry

Calling your name in the silence

In you I find myself.

    How beautiful! Thank you so much for a lovely synchronicity as well as I´m kind of “collecting” white feathers, and have spoken about them in my blog and also recently published a poem of a similar theme. 🙂 Love, Deelia

    The “unmade bed” image of your other wonderful post for today is also awesome. There was another synchronicity, as I had just before coming to WordPress reader shared two images of similar color world on Facebook, I mean the hues and combination of green and blue (I seem to be so very drawn to them recently). I could stare that image all day. 🙂
