My Soul Hearkens

Today he speaks to me

without words.

His presence ripples

through my ears

And suffuses my heart and mind.

His presence is music.

I am comforted and lifted up

in a dance of perfect peace.

Perfect Peace


The Music of Silence

The alarm rings. The dog whines to go outside. The coffee pot buzz tells us it’s time for our first sip of caffeine. Water rushes at us from the showerhead. The car engine makes its starting sound (unless it’s a hybrid, of course), the radio or music flips on, we surround ourselves with other whirring vehicles and honking horns. Now enter the workplace….whose noise will vary immensely for each. Endless voices bombard us from every angle: friends talk, friends text, we even chatter incessantly to ourselves.

From sunup to sundown noise greets our every breath.

What has become of you?
Where can we escape to find you?
What will we discover when we do?

Our society likes to equate silence with boredom. I posit that silence reveals jewels that are the authenticity of life :
And especially, real Love.

Stop, noise! Let the eyes of my heart see the dance of silence and let her ears hear the music so that I might truly live!

The Music and I are One

The notes reach my ears.

They sink into my being.

One by one, droplets of life.

Every cell saturated

with life giving force.

I breathe.

I draw them in

one by one.

Each moves through me.

The music and I are one.

I am complete.

A Letter to Music

Dear Sounds of Nature and Other Lovely Music,

Thank you for being the image of the One who at the center of my being. The One at the center of all creation.

Thank you, too, for reminding me that He and the music are One. That the music at the center of every atom in me and all around me, is my Creator.

With gratitude,

Me – always dancing, always singing, whether I know it or not
