Langston Hughes

Happy birthday, Langston Hughes, one of my favorite poets:

I catch the pattern
Of your silence
Before you speak

I do not need
To hear a word.

In your silence
Every tone I seek
Is heard.

I Continue to Dream
I take my dreams and make of them a bronze vase
and a round fountain with a beautiful statue in its center.
And a song with a broken heart and I ask you:

Do you understand my dreams?

Sometimes you say you do,
And sometimes you say you don't.
Either way it doesn't matter.

I continue to dream.
