In Stillness the Lake Remembers

20180930_130120

Currents, running deep beneath the surface

in stillness,

the lake remembers 

our need for prayer

in a world of anger

we can still discover

the peace of the lake,

and the wholeness

of the quiet

within.

The Silence of My Heart

100_1046

Some say the ripping open, the rawness of our scars creates the writer,

but I prefer the gentle movement of the leaves,

the touch of a soft rain, caressing my face

and ducks paddling quietly across

the slow meandering river,

as I listen to the silence

of my heart.
