The Silence

Those who say…

“There is silence in the forest.”

“There is silence at the lake.”

“There is silence throughout the desert.”

“There is silence as the bluefish schools
the surface of the tourmaline ocean.”

“There is silence as the barn owl hovers
above vole-cowering meadow.”

“There is silence as the honey bee ambles
across coneflower head under cloud-wisp sky.”

…Have never heard their own voice

offering up the prayer of gratitude

that the silence

was created for.

  1. I am always spiritually filled when I come to sit in your sacredness and read your holy words Jamie...

    In my humble opinion you are right there with Gibran, Rumi, O'Donohue...

    Keep writing Beloved One, keep writing!

    1. I am the one humbled Akasa. A deep bow of gratitude to you. Thank you for being here.
      Deep blessings...
