Between Words

Between words,
our silences pool
in shallow fragments of sky
under the liquid fingers of evergreen trees
and the monsoon serein.
The sky drips endlessly
from the branches,
and the drops fall wordless
from the drenched green voices
of the leaves.

What else is left for ourselves
after the blue rain
of this evening is gone?
Between your words and mine,
our silences pool —
and they are as much mine
as they are yours.
