The Message

I live in a forest of falling things

wind brings down the brittle branch
rain brings down the leaf and needle

they are messages falling from above
which we can open and read anytime

there is a forest language they use
which is almost like a song

in the spaces between its lyrics
a message is patiently nesting

the rest is music for its own sake
we, each one of us, are the melody

the message is the silence,
it remains unheard
