God's poet

God's poet is silence!  His song is unspoken
And yet so profound, and so loud, and so far,
That it thrills you and fills you in measures unbroken—
The unceasing song of the first morning star....
~Joaquin Miller

everywhere I go
noise invades, betrays
the truth of silence
keeping me from
the song 
He longs to impart
deep into my spirit
planted in my heart

Karin, I couldn't help but think of these lines from Psalm 19:
"1 The heavens declare the glory of God;the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,their words to the ends of the world."

Beauty in all these words--thank you.

As usual, good thinking, good sharing, good photo. Thanks much. AND it's nice to see Jody right ahead of me, who is one of your good friends and mine, too. Sure would love to meet you sometime or somehow have the Lord put the 3 of us together for lunch someday. I'd be grinning for a long time. Again, thank you for what you shared.
