Light shouts

That is when ears become dumb
Turning on soul’s inner working.
We wait for  brief evening shout
When we hear again in treetops.

Faces are lighted only to darken
As a night encroaches on minds.
Old Rilke’s light goes on to shout
Beyond treetops,after darkness.

(remembering Rilke’s “the light shouts...)
