Pear Branch in Bloom

A small branch from the pear tree broke off and I brought it inside to see if the buds would open. It has been on the table for three weeks. 
I am grateful for the gift of delicate beauty and new life.

Late one winter evening,
Silence presented herself at my door
wanting refuge for the night
and perhaps something more.

She brought a few things with her,
it didn't look like much
but soon she filled corners and niches
that had been neglected, forgotten and such.

Silence and I stood in the hallway
She unlocked what my heart had clasped
Silence filled the space between us
my heart breathed...peace at last.
