Silent Conversation

Silence whispered into my ear
"to know the story of earth
ask the heavens"
Then it whispered in the other ear
"as for the story of the heavens, ask the earth" -
identical twins separated in space

But to know who you are there is no one to ask
just embrace silence and pray for grace
the rest are colourful traps in time and space
guarded by fears, desires,
distractions and other fantasies,
preparations for suffering
sometimes veiled by values
like kindness, freedom
or service to others
and countless other mirages
in life's vast desert.
