Silence, A Privilige - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

In silence I move beyond myself
from the prison of chaos and worries
I listen to the pulse of my heart
and the breathing through my nose.

In silence I open my ears
to the songs of the morning birds,
to the ticking of the clock,
and the sounds of cicadas in the nights.

In silence I stand in awe
before the Presence of God
who formed me in my mother's womb
and wonder why He has kept me alive.

In silence I open my being
to the Source of Life -
Greater, Higher and Mightier than I am
Upon whom I find my life's anchor.

    In silence, we contemplate to find out ways to be in harmony with nature and all good things which the God has blessed us with. It allows us to look deep inside us and to explore the meaning of our lives. Thanks for sharing the poem with us. (Report)Reply
