A Call from silence

Silence is tugging at my heart
urging me to listen
it is as if someone is calling me
but there is no one here
then whose voice is it
that i hear
anklets jiggling elegantly
lovely feet have left lovely tracks
There is nothing to feel sad about
i find a necklace bead
a pearl like a tear
for whose safety is my prayer .
the diamond earrings
hear me
smiling lips speak not
songs of the heart
echo in the valley
of silence
you are here but invisible
but the heart can see through
and hear through silence.
