Sheer Silence

Hear the silence in my heart, Most Holy,
the reverberating sound of “I don’t know.”


Do not call me from this cave
or tease my heart with angels,
for I am determined to rest.


The familiar has become foreign to my soul
and home is a bitter dream without roots.


Do not ask what I am doing
or press me for a vision,
for my soul is lost.


Choose another, or call me to battle,
so that I might find my way again.

on 1 Kings 19
