Sound of Silence

Hush

Can you hear it?

A softness in the night

Hush,

Close your eyes

This sound is pure delight

Stop,

Don’t give up

Sit a moment and regress

Stop,

Now breath in

Silence like a caress

Find it,

That feeling

Like waiting with intent

Find it,

Uncomfortable

Yet sweetness in its get

Strang

To hunger

For for what you easily brake

Strang

To anticipate

Loss within its wake

Blessings

In finding

Peace in moments lent

Blessings

Abundant

In silence well spent

Mountain Glory

The glory of a mountain peak

Is like a friend who doesn’t speak

Light that plays on glass like lake

Almost moves a heart to break

But if it breaks this pain is kind

It only serves as a remind

There are many friends beyond mankind
