Close your eyes what is heard?
Perhaps the chirping of a bird?
Maybe water’s gurgling gush?
Gentle wind’s sweeping brush?
One thing more, quiet, serene
Contrasted silence in between
Silence strikes a gong of peace
In still moments seconds cease
Empty space devoid of noise
And sitting still in perfect poise
Listen – listen - hear voice inside
Of truth and love now verified
O Lord let me not be tempted by incessant noise that calls the senses away from Thee. Rather let me feel thee in all sensations and in the silence that is Thy voice whispering loving secrets to me.
