Neither Silent Nor Still

** Neither Silent Nor Still ** With you…by you…in you Lord, I never found silence To be stillness. With you, silence is elevating, escalating, Eternally An ongoing current — a soundless ocean With an unending Roll-over of crested waves, But silent with the pulse of my soul. In silence I found The heart of God, but Therein God heard The Voice of my devotion — Heart to heart — His tenderly spoken response Heard within a silence By an inner ear With the moving grace Of a full embrace of utter peace, Which was not still, but Cradling held, a hint of floating With a consuming quiet joy That I turn and turn over In memory to Repeat the rhythm-breathing Communion…Alleluia! Come Alleluia, Abba! All Love is yours — ————————————————————————————————- (c) sally young eslinger Thanks be to God
