I don’t really have much to say right now, it’s been a busy month that has left me feeling a little out of it. There are things to be told and inner struggles that have begun to show signs of resolution that I will try to share in the coming month or so. But for now, all there is to say is that for a brief moment about a week and a half ago, I was inspired to write – something that hasn’t happened in such a long time. So, here it is:

In the Silence of the Evening

In the silence of the evening
As the bright sun dims
In the reddened sky to the west
And the cool hint of wind
Signals the last breath of day
I sit in awe
That this moment –
In the midst of fear and confusion,
In the midst of solitude and loneliness,
In the midst of possibility and hope –
That this moment
Was offered not
For the ones who wanted romance
Nor for those who came to play,
It is mine.
As I question and complain
And the din of my thoughts
Echo across my being
The gentle whisper of peace
Leads me on to a place
That I never thought could be.
I am not home.
Nor do I know the way.
But I am compelled to step on
Following the unseen,
Listening to the unheard,
Embracing the mystery.
