For An,

For a second the

trees stopped

the rain deceased 

and there was 

no one around

who could possibly 

speak.

For a minute

the stillness 

was almost frightening 

especially when eyes

were no longer 

close to open wide.

For an hour

the cars that

once ran

now slowed to

a stillness

almost unspeakable 

and for 365 days

we all thought we were dead.
