Dim the Din

Deafening silence
defies demanding.

Dwell in the moment,
doubt not the Word, with
discernment is clad.

I am not searching,
I am travelling
with friends commingling.

Demurred distractions
Dismissed – be still, a
delicate voice speaks.

Past informs present —
Listen with intent
and silent assent

Duped not by “owned”, I,
despite the “story”,
dissent for our Us.

Watch for openings,
embrace the goings,
enjoy the comings.

Deliberate words
determine my here,
define my how, now.

Divine disposing
directs me calmly.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
