Silence


God's poet is silence!  His song is unspoken
And yet so profound, and so loud, and so far,
That it thrills you and fills you in measures unbroken—
The unceasing song of the first morning star....
~Joaquin Miller, from "The True Poet"

Things have been quite quiet around here for a while.
I could bore you with all the details of a road project gone awry and the resulting loss of our communication connection with those far away, but I won't.

My first response was to fret and fume.
After some time of silence though, I was reminded that *it* really is golden.

Enjoying the sounds of.....

bird calls in the morning
the sounds of community all around us
brooms scratching across dirt compounds
truck horns honking
baby babbling
children tidying up and singing to themselves
water sloshing in buckets
fans creaking
stories read aloud to all of us
the quiet rhythms of family.

Wishing you all a quiet weekend together!
