The Gift of Silence


to truly enjoy nature is to experience absolute tranquility

one cannot notice the tiny ant exploring the leaf of the vine

as it violently assaults the husk of the tree in its everlasting

quest for absolute light and warmth from the morning Sun.


silence is also a requirement for space our brains to breathe

creativity ne’er comes from bedlam, nor travail, nor revelry

our creativity needs the quietude of space to allow the whispers

of God to enter our hearts allowing us His voice to lead.


The Gift of Silence – A Necessity: A Space to Breathe

God’s Grace of Peace – A Blessing: Infinite Life
