Rhythms of Silence

How deeply stirs the stillness
     filled with the silence of great love
     rich with the melodies of silent songs
     overflowing with glories unspoken
          and unspeakable

Oh Lord
     I can’t hear you.

Be still
          and know

Surface froth of bursting bubbles
     crashing waves of noise after noise after noise
     random riffs of chaos passing for rhythm
     saying everything that needs to be said and
          so much more more more

Such courage is needed
     to abandon my own frantic meaningless
     noise in favor of . . .

          what feels like nothing

but is as far from nothing as is possible

Oh Lord
     Speak in a voice more

Be still

     there is no voice
          more familiar
          than shared silence

Oh Lord
     tune my heart
          to silence
          to the
               rhythms of your
