The Best – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


“Where words are restrained, the eyes often talk a great deal.” Samuel Richardson

The Best

It was the best conversation,
not a sound,
but the curtains of her mind
were flung wide and
the sapphire panes of her
soul gave intimate insight
to the held desires she 
cherished above all things,
once hidden from the world,
offered now, not as sacrifice,
but as silent gift.
