Sweet silence, come

Come fill me with your peace and calm

In a world of noise and confusion

I choose silence

The quiet beckons me

And I come

To be cradled

Comforted

Consoled

In a world gone mad with greed

In a world so indifferent

To the weak and marginalized

Silence comes

To restore

Rejuvenate

And rebuild

Souls that thirst

For justice and equality

Come, please, come

Fill up our senses with the wisdom of quiet moments

Spent in prayer

And silence

  1. Beautiful Carol. Especially true this day after the federal election. The world is too busy with hate. I read it twice and felt it. Thanks my friend β™₯
