Silence

Let me hear what God the LORD will speak
(Psalm 85:8a)

and let me not be afraid

of the silence

of the unspoken

of waiting while time passes

eternal seconds without a single word

I shall not pray

I shall not fill the space

with my own words, thoughts,
run-ons, rabbit-holes

only wait

for God to be God

for my heart to melt in conversion

for speech to be revealed, enfleshed, in life

then my lips will sigh with joy

and my breath

will be planted like seeds

and peace will grow deep in my soul
