Silence

Our Creator manifests himself in silence
Within our personal depths and beyond
Forms, words, and images…

Suppressing by his grace all the intermediary
Layers and silence will lead us into the depths
Of love.

No longer clinging to ideas, feelings, thoughts,
Emotions, gestures, songs, etcetera.

For by prayer we communicate solely by Contemplating face to face as we adore
From our own condition of clay.

Silence is what remains when we are purified.
A field open to be strolled day by day.

In God see Creation for creation comes from
The toil of God.

The fields, the hills, the forests, the mountains,
The seas, the rivers, animals and human kind
All comes from His heart.

An expression of beauty in which love is the root
And the field is the clay in which we are a part.
