it's the silence

It’s the silence that’s the really important 

thing – three or four times a day if that’s

remotely possible

 

It’s the silence that’s the really important 

thing because the cave-like walls around the 

edges of the no-noise afford resounding 

echoes of the silent music you really need to

remember, ​the in-breath, the out-breath, the 

heartbeat, the murmur

 

Not so much THE, actually, but rather hers, or

his, your own dear co-creators who gaze out

lovingly, with attentive eye and ear and scent

and taste and touch, from the very heart and

source of an infinite waterfall that heals and

raises dead things buried deep in damp earth

and irrigates the depths of the soul

It’s the silence that’s the really important 

thing – three or four times a day if that’s

remotely possible 

 

because that’s where the deepest encounters

take place, that’s where you meet vivacity 

that’s where you know that because She’s still

breathing, singing, laughing, being, weeping,

growing, making – so, too, in all eternity 

 

you are, in I AM
