A Poem by Glenda Higgins: "Falling Into Silence"

Falling Into Silence

My words climbed a mountain
To be squeezed by the sun
And smelled by the moon
Full ripe cheese

Talking in the night
About God and good
With a booming voice
Of questions raised

Backdrop against the devil
Flinging wandering doubts
Wondering beetle singing
In the early May snow

Under the lone tree
A mind of avalanches
A snow bowl of sound
Falling into silence

Glenda Higgins writes: "This poem is about my Outward Bound experience where I did a solo on top of a mountain for 3 days without food or water - it was a vision quest based on the North American Native tradition.
