Like the Fleeting Shadows

In a dream

The moments pass
and all we have
is the silence
inside us,
the silence that joins us
to the stars
and each other,
the silence that gazes through us,
the light in our heart
and in our eyes.

And as drifting moments
slide like shadows
fade like dreams
and slip away
like water
through our fingers,
the conscious silence
becoming human life
and moments of experience
is helping us know
what words never say.

In every moment,
the silent song of the Universe
brings us home to itself,
while life slides through us
like the fleeting shadows
in a dream.
