Silence

Photo Jun 14, 5 34 04 PMHave you ever noticed, rarely is there silence. 

Traffic hums, trucks rumble, electrical boxes buss, air conditioners kick on and off, my washing machine seems to always be running, kids yell, scream and laugh, adults chatter, laugh and yell, bees buzz, trees rustle, cicadas are loud, birds chirp even the wind blows fierce. 

That the silence invades so suddenly. Finding yourself in a quiet place is startling. What is in the silence? 

Heartbeat

Steady

Ripple

Emotion

Wind

Soft

Sorrow

Loud

Steadfast

Love

Oceans

Tide

 

Stepping into a silent place, feeling it rise, it soothes. 

I’m small, so small… the silence is huge and deep. 

I’m tossed about as the silence rises like a wave.

Something gets swept away. 

Some muck from my soul. 

Some of the noise of this world. 

And I’m restored.
