One

For The Sunday Muse Prompt #119, Artistic Photography Dreamlike Portrait Photography by Damien Casals:

**
You and I
are becoming one,
our unspoken words
a voice, mellow
in its timbre,
its echo light
like a soft hand
yet firm, kneading out
the noise from
the silence that we share.
In that silence
of being and being present,
of returning and reforming,
of holding out against
the pressure of the world,
are broken things
becoming whole again,
each breath a small victory
won by persistence,
a fresh shoot
pushing its way
through the things
that rage has razed.

    When two can share silences, they can grow strong together. I love this A.J.! Beautiful in every way and that last line is steller!

    Love this, the remaking, the new shoots, the spin between breaking and repair.

    I love this! The silent “presence”, the broken things becoming whole again and the “fresh shoot pushing its way through the things that rage has razed.” Wow. What a fantastic write!

    I like the brief lines in this. They lead right into that amazing ending.

    “pushing its way
