Sound of silence

Modern living presents 
Small portrait-sized
Black-mirror windows
Into foreign lands 
Full of pop wisdom
Highs like sherbet sticks
Rainbows that fade soon as
We hit the power button

We are not bound up in pixels
Love hearts, thumbs up
To bow your neck
Squint though fingerprints
Smile lingers only a moment

I give you sunrise and sunsets
Wishing stones falling through
Lapping waves glistening
Paw prints and hellos

I give you the awkward moments
When I realise I poured my heart out
You received it willingly
I am silent in thankfulness

I hold my breath waiting
For you to speak
Exhaled step by step 
Cadence of time together
Waiting for one another
In the sound of silence
