A Distinctive Quiet.


The day still,
The air clear and chill. 
I sense His will.
I hear the melody of the robin -
The rapid bark of a dog -
The distant sweep of a broom. 
Yet in the room
Sound is frozen.
I have been encouraged
To turn my ear to God.
In whispers that echo
Deep in my mind. 
Now I’m alert – it is time.
No denials, no buts.
Just listen to His kind cuts,
Convictions and gentle reminders.
I welcome the dissipation of self-doubt.
The drought is forced out. 
Inspiration materialises wrapped
In that inexplicable joy!
No hesitation. It will be done.
I’m fuelled for the journey ahead -
The time has come.
