silent moment

like Samuel
we need to learn how to hear
in the making of me
the element of silence is immense
either God gives us words
or we merely give an opinion
our speaking
must come out of our listening
what we say
must come out of what we hear
there is a silence so vast
it has a life of its own
it is not the absence of sounds
but rather the presence of something very old
very still
very watchful
