When Time Breaks Silence

by Venkat


when time breaks its silence
freezing for a few moments

I hear it in a shivering leaf
under waves of a breeze unheard

I feel it in a dripping noiseless dew
pulled closer by a gravity unfelt

I see it in the dance of particles
made bright by a light unseen

I smell it on a wet fresh earth
below a dark rainy sky unsmelt

I remember by words unsaid
in images of memory forgotten

as time traces back into silence
it melts the heart into shapes untraced
