atmospherics

Poem #228 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Back to Bachelard and me – Introduction


it’s so quiet
on the other side
of atmosphere

I can’t hear
the dog next door
or the car
that is coughing awake
outside my window

a creamy-lemon moon
looks at me
says nothing
it’s so quiet

discrete

the black of every where
of every thing
is a silent shade
that seeks a presence
by stealth

look down
at blue
the clouds
don’t even leave
a susurration

it’s so quiet
the only thing
is reassuring air
and I breathe it
as grateful
as a whisper
