Where have you flown, far from home?
What new sights to eyes were shown?
Where pigeons strut on cobbled stone
Did you feast on morsels thrown?
“So odd to tell in squares I found
Empty benches on empty ground
Stepping in church and open halls
No ears there to hear my calls
With humans gone from city streets
Feeling strange with not a sound
My random thoughts took early flight
As blazing sun made colours bright
Now covered in calm silent shroud
No jarring traffic warnings loud
I felt inside away from noise
Serenity, peace, and steady poise”
O Lord of Peace, still my mind from meaningless thoughts. Supplement my weakness by forcefully fixing my mind on Thee. May I find in the stillness that special quiet to feel Your loving embrace.
