Broken Silence

Background: this is based on what I felt during a brief spring snowstorm early on the 12th. See the poem entitled "Silence" a few posts down.

Broken Silence
by: R.A. Slater

Alone I stood in the storm
The deadening silence echoing around me
Filled with the sounds of falling snow and rain
As a child I lifted my face
To gaze upward in the night
Ever upward
Into the onslaught
Such beauty raining down on me
There was nothing gentle about it
For the snowflakes mingled in the rain
Were heavy and wet
They streaked by me like meteors in the night sky
It was then that I felt You
In this moment made for romance
The snow and rain catching in my hair
Were Your fingers caressing me
Each snowflake, each drop of rain
That pelted my face with wetness
Were Your ardent kisses
Though You said not a word
Letting the tinkling sound of the falling snow
Fill my ears as You filled my heart
In that eternal moment
I knew that the silence
The terrible aching silence
Had been broken
