Bouquet of Closed Mouths

Bunch together

incomplete sentences

and every unspoken word.

Crush the long stems

of silence close

so every thought fits

inside the vase.

Pluck off the leaves

of emotions,

attachment, and resolution.

Spread out the grief stricken blooms

so you can see the richness

of resentment in each petal.

Place the bouquet

in the middle of the table

and sit around it.

Observe each mute 

conversation blossom

and not say a word.
