Stillness Speaks

Stillness speaks through Silence,
Like a rainbow speaks of color,
Like an infant’s smile speaks of joy,
Conveys knowing in the heart.
When Stillness speaks,
The Silence is deafening.

Where does your thirst come from?
Not the thirst upon your tongue
But the question of “Why is there a Universe?
How did humanity come to be
Upon this remote blue speck of dust?”
Those are the pressing and eternal questions,
Always lurking in your thoughts.

And the answer is only found
In Stillness of pure imagination.
Stop asking questions and get out of your head.
As Dante said, “the heavens swirl about us
While our eyes are cast down to the ground.”
Open the window and let the wind blow…..
Feel the rain fall upon your face.
