The Dreams Are Stilled

The Dreams Are Stilled

In beautiful colours

The whirling sea of leaves

Finally untethered

Dances with the winds

And is tossed upon the storm

But where each dead leaf falls

There it stays in rest

Under the weight

Of an unseen force

And so I sit in silence

In the company of thought

And so the dreams are stilled

Like the promise of tomorrow

That blithely fades away
