Without Words

Waiting for Words January 11, 2017

There was peace

in being

without words —


all that was

too much

to be —

waiting for

a more subtle message

to form —

wating for our hearts

to speak.


This Listening

Quieting October 7, 2016

Writing calms me

like medicine.

It quiets me.

I don’t try to understand

with my mind.

I just let it flow out

and sink in

to my heart.

Sometimes one word

shows up in a piece

and reaches where I couldn’t

reach in other ways.

Maybe it is that

I have to become

so still inside

to listen

with my whole being.

Maybe it is this listening

that calms the little parts

of me so profoundly.
