Are you listening to the silence?
Hearing its slow wing beats.
Gazing into life’s depths.
Witnessing inner strength be born.
Sensing worry dissipating.
Finding calm in the middle of struggle.
Be present here.
Open your heart.
Listen to the blessed silence.

Nice writing! I enjoyed it. Thanks!
Happy you liked it Elan.
Beautiful poem and stunning photo 🙂
Thanks Amy, I’m happy you liked it.
Your photography is truly amazing, Tiny. I’m always wowed by the photos, but this time the combination of photograph and words just blew me away. I’ve been editing a very personal and difficult-to-write post for the past couple of hours. This was exactly the sentiment that I needed at this moment. xoxo
Thanks Nancy! My hubby says I’ve been bitten by the photo bug…and it might be true, trying to learn little more every day. Happy you like my poem, wrote it this morning much for myself…needed to find calm and it kind of helped. Funny. I’ll head over to see if you’ve already posted. XOXO
It’s not scheduled to publish til tomorrow morning. Needed to let it marinate for a few hours. 🙂
Marinated is always really good 😀
You do have a way with words my friend. And pictures. 🙂 ❤
Thanks Jackie! As I said above the photo bug bit me and the only way to cure the bite is to take more photos 😀 I needed to calm down this morning so this poem just “came out” XOXO
oh oh, that doesn’t sound good. Hope calming down worked! ❤
It worked fairly well!
Beautiful, sweet Tiny. I so love and look forward to times of silence. Hugs
Thanks Maggie, I’m so happy you like it. We are so busy and often full of worries that silence, when we can get it, feels soothing. Many hugs to you too!
I comfortably spend a lot of time in and with silence, Tiny. And odd to many, I find calm in darkness, just as I do with radiant light. Your words are lovely, as is your flying friend.:)
Thank you Eric. We all have our way to get to our silent place. I love when I can spend alone time in the nature…or with a few friends like this one 🙂
Soothing silence. 🙂
It always is! And I don’t mind the rolling of the waves or an occasional song by a “friend”…
Thank you, Tiny. I got toppled over and crawling back to Silence ever since. Bless you for this inspiring post. Oh, how I need it!! (((HUGS))) Amy
Thanks dear Amy! Happy it came at the right time. We all need to crawl back to Silence every now and then. Many hugs to you my friend!
Happy you enjoyed the poem!
I try to “listen” to the world and sometimes I feel its pain. thanks for this post. ajm
I do too…and that’s when silence helps me to calm down. Happy it spoke to you Ann.
“…hearing the slow wing beats…”
Happy you heard the wing beats, David. Thank you.
Magnificent words and image…I just felt every ounce of stress leave my body!
Thanks Susan! That post relieved my stress too when I was putting it together 🙂
