Grace and Solitude

The quiet words that speak to us without sound or saying That stem from seedlings of open prayer within our heart Divesting poise of quintessential quietude relaying Conversation with our inner voice in the language of the sermons art Cherished truths of mindful wisdom so calm with ease of thought Prevail within the psalm's revelation rejoicing in knowing Sighing in rivers placid currents as the gift of repose is sought With a dowry of tacit grace its kind abundance flowing The specter of dreams serenely embrace winged hearts above To sing the score of its air stream bliss of harmony and rapport Our spirit's dance on a brighter shore that gleams in the light of love As ethereal music sates our restful core enhancing blithely evermore Reaching our gate of reason and reverence cures our fears of gloom For knowing ourselves in its deference is such a wise understanding Showing heaven's redemption, its sacred sanctuary and hallowed room In storms of life where cleansing rain brings solitude-our grace commanding May 3, 2020 Grace and Solitude Poetry Contest Sponsored by John Hamilton
