That time of silence

That time of silence

It’s coming soon, that time of silence
When the birds pay their last call
They come to feed here from the seed trays
It’s a time so beautiful.
Cause all those sounds both loud and soft
Diminish into naught.
And cause such depth to touch my heart

To cut down all the thought.
There’s something about the dusk’s silence
That mesmerizes me
The mystery and the stillness
How wonderful it be
When the sky is blotched with clouds
Then the dusk is so unreal
Red to orange, fade to darkness
So sweet it makes me feel.

So just for now I’ll sit and wait
And watch the parrots eat
It’s not too long now till it’s here
This evening show so sweet
When once again the sun will sink
Into the mystic night
To let love touch my heart again
And give me sweet delight.

    That's a magic way to end the day when peace bestows it's gift. It can't help but seep deep inside and help give you a lift. Peace. :)

    This poem tells me that you do know how to slow down your mind. It is in meditative spaces, places and earthly graces that can sedate a wild mind.

    Hi Allan, I have been meditating for years, but nothing changed for me until I used John Shermans teaching which is to place the attention on that part of you that is always there beyond the thoughts emotions and feelings. And now the peace is coming to me in big helpings..Thanks for your comments my friend....Peter
