Waiting Silence

When life becomes a burden,

An ache in the shoulders,

A tightness in the back,

Where do you go for peace?

-----------------------------

There are times life grants us

When noises are silenced,

Time moves around us,

And we are alone

with ourselves.

-----------------------------

What do you do in these moments?

-----------------------------

Such a short moment,

A few seconds, maybe an hour

To reflect on where you are going,

Where you have been,

Yet, do you reflect on

Where you are?

-----------------------------

Here.

Now.

-----------------------------

The silence beckons to you

Wanting to embrace you,

With arms of understanding,

Silent words,

Can you hear them?

They are meant

For you.

-----------------------------

Too often these times,

When the world waits for us,

To pause, to reflect,

We move past,

Continue on our course,

A course that leads nowhere;

A place imagination

Provides.

-----------------------------

Where are you?

The Silence is waiting.
