STORM AND SILENCE expertly combines the narrator’s voice with the voice of landscape, weather and situation. When one speaks, another answers.
Rain falls on mountains, as tears fall on a face. Music reflects internal turmoil. Human intimacy is delicately painted
You breathe in and out with the air
of the earth living and dying
in you — the nature of our lives.
With Keilan Colville’s debut pamphlet, a young Northern-Irish poet emerges.
I stand and gaze at you, with the restricted delay of your breath diminishing like the flame of a waxless candle. I am told to say goodbye, oblivious that I will never utter another sound to you again that you will hear.
And so, in your last stretch of mortality, I say,
‘See you later, Jen’, and leave the dying room.
