hush moment

held in a hug of holy hush
the land simply lay there
like Adam awaiting his first breath
the air heavy in pregnant anticipation
hovered over the perfectly stilled waters
quietly slipping the kayak into the lake
and gently easing out from shore
it was wonder-filled to be one with it all
in absolute silence
rain started falling
like giant oval tears from heaven
each drop partly embraced by the lake
partly bouncing back up
reaching for its place of birth
and the hush only deepend
how could all this water fall
without a sound
only when lightening began to rip the sky
did I head back
