Silence!

I love the sound of silence!

I love the quiet sound

Of the hushed, quiet rooms.

I love when the house is empty,

TV and Bose are turned off,

And the windows are open to

Lilting birdsong or a soft breeze.

It takes longer

To quiet the noise in my mind.

It takes more than a few minutes

Of soft peaceful silence

To quiet my thoughts,

To prepare my heart.

Then,

In the silence,

I finally begin

To listen to God,

To recognize God’s voice

and let the Spirit flow through me,

I love the sound of silence!
