Soundless Yes

Here in this room,

this morning

no machine sound,

no gears or clockwork

falling into place,

just the soundless yes

of your hair upon the pillow,

breathing softly in pre dawn light.

    Beautiful, Don.

    There’s a mission statement in there: “hearing the soundless yeses in my life”

    Amazing contrast as I am surrounded by a soundful monsoon thunderstorm, thrashing the tin roof; and yet…soundless in mind and heart, in communion with your creation this moment. Thank you.

    I awoke into a landscape of quiet..trees with leaves silently breathing..No further movement. Profound. Thanks for adding your experience of quiet human breathing very touching you are blessed

    Silence….turn up your volume
    Til I hear nothing else

    Don, what an exquisite word portrayal of the intimate, holy moment. As the very fine comments all suggest, each one of us experience the Sacred in the moment of our reading. Each comment, living poetry in its own write, blessing upon blessing extended.
