half sonnet for silence

for the first time the geese are silent
you can hear the grass making its slow way
to the heart of things; the dirt crumble
the itchy drip the rain makes, rock to rock
the underground quiver of a mole
the none-sound fire makes when it fails to ignite
the soft cracking of the next heart to break

for the last time the geese are silent
