A Distinctive Quiet.©



The day still,

The air clear and chill,

I sense His will.

I hear the melody of the lark,

The rapid bark of a dog,

The distant sweep of a broom –

Yet in the room

Sound is frozen.

I have been chosen

To turn my ear to God.


In whispers that echo

Far in my mind;

Now I’m alert – it is time,

No denials, no buts!

Just listen to His kind cuts,

Subtle conviction, and gentle reminders.

I welcome the dissipation of self-doubt.


I can’t, I can, I will!

The transparency of conscience –

Inspiration arrives wrapped with a bow

And always, that inexplicable joy!

No… no, hesitation –

Thy will be done.

I’m fuelled for the journey ahead;

The time has come.
