Nihil Sine Nefas

I do not speak
But I still have something to day

The very rocks have voices
If only someone would lend an ear

The sea murmurs promises
But no one understands

The deer leave messages in their run
We haven’t cracked the code

The river sings songs
And no-one stops to hear

The trees do speak
But no one knows the language

The stars tell sagas
Nobody knows how to listen

They have a language
Which we’ve never bothered to learn

They all yell,
But you do not listen.

I wrote this piece after realizing that humans are not the only beings on this world that communicate in a language. I also hope readers take that from this.
