The Quiet Place

Woods 2015 023

Moses had the burning bush,

but all I need are some leaves,

and some mountains,

to know You are near,

to be taken to another place,

a quiet place,

where there is no war,

where storms are softer,

and people speak words,

of love and compassion.

Help us to put away,

our swords and shields,

may we never have another need,

for daggers.

Sculpt us, carving,

until we are people from,

the quiet place.

Speak to us,

from the leaves.

  1. I love it when we are able to be still long enough to hear nature speak profoundly. Such wonderful lessons we can learn through silence…

    Great post!
