Let the Morning's Silence Set You Free
By Don Iannone

Morning broke in silence
only the heart can hear.
Her slow steady breath enraptured
the dark sleeping trees,
whose silhouette forewarned
a shadowless January day.
It has been said...
that we must always bear in mind
that we are not going to be free,
but we are free already. And
that every idea that we are bound
is only an illusion.
Let the morning's silence set you free
as your shadow dissolves
in the morning's next breath.

Note: Quote on freedom by Swami Vivekananda

Hi Don,
the idea that we are bound
is an illusion, yet with both
feet firmly on the ground
one is cloaked, in fine cloth
