THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE
Sitting quietly on a rock I hear the silence of my space.
Feeling in my heart I’m in the presence of God’s grace.
I listen to what I hear, I’m overcome by the buzzing of the bees,
the wind in the trees and the sound of silence.
I am blessed to leave behind the sound, that is on my mind.
I realize that it’s a new day. I’m feeling peace as I pray.
The only noise that I hear is the sound of silence.
What does this mean? It’s like I’m in a dream.
Suddenly I hear the sound of a quiet stream.
I listen to what I hear, everything that nature has to say.
What a beautiful and special day. It’s the sound of silence.
Thinking about how nature seems to talk to us.
I hear Her songs. The woodpecker drumming on a tree,
suddenly a soft and gentle breeze,
brings me to my knees, and the sound of silence.
