We talked about silence
Laughed about death
We wondered about joy
Settled upon questions
We questioned our answers.

We dreamed about waking
Played while working
We worked at playing
Sang about whispers
We whispered about song.

We ran as slowly as possible
Imagining the inevitable

We reduced our ego
Slowed our breath.
We gave nature a path
Rejoiced with
No organizing principle
Except for silence.
