Dew stars love yew

In rainy slow traffic this morning, a poem came to me.
dew

dew falls
while we slumber
in silence

emerging from the air
touching everything
nurturing life
in silence

distant stars fade
as daybreak comes
retreating
in silence

waking brings me near
you
in silence

your touch sends waves
beginning from nowhere
ending at my skin
in silence

yellow leaves fall from trees
in silence

the silence that waits
below our rushing current

I hope this brings you a moment of peace.
