The Power of the Word

He lay silent,
wordless trapped in a body of pain
no movement possible no hope of recovery.

Outside the trees sang their arias
conducted by the breeze
it was a painting of life

his eyes rested on the light.
She sat beside him stroking his hand
passing the touch of life with every stroke
as she read poetry the soft words
familiar rhythms entered his ears

brought healing peace through this sense
as the day slipped into evening’s song
the poems became prayers.
