At night, after rush of day
Slowly fades to silhouetted blue,
Only light the upturned sliver of the Moon—
Learn what only Silence teaches.
Open eyes and heart and be not
Ungrateful for the dark.
Lift your eyes above the highest trees.
Sit upon the ground and be open
To all that gentle wind brings.
Can you hear the Silence speak?
Observe as Silence edifies the mind,
Drains away all fear.
Stillness offers lessons in solitude.
Study every breath as you relax.
