Silence

Quietly wander without making noise,

or in stillness embrace the emptiness.

 

It takes skill to be heartily refreshed,

listening is work done with a purpose,

to communicate with silence opens me.

 

In silence, we don’t take more than we need –

being present can be a huge ordeal,

being present can provide a healing.

 

Listen to “no, means no” and “yes, means yes”.

Learn the tongue of silence speaking clearly,

keep the lesson of openness alive.

 

Wander the twisting labyrinth,

ponder the nothing in nothingness

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
