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
6/6/05

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.
