I simply love what you did with the word Silent, here. You made us focus on so much that is all around us that we never hear, unless we stop to experience the silence. You've also given me an idea. I have a collection of favorite words. Now you've demonstrated for me how I can showcase each one of them. Thank you, friend!
Loved this on many levels. Silent retreats are my favorite time to reflect and just listen... to God's voice, to my own, and then always starting again to be a better listener with fewer words. This poem says it all.. between the noise there is much to learn!
