The Silence Inside Us
Touches the stars
“Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing” — Kahlil Gibran
Our heart is a sky
across the Universe
and as the silence inside us
touches the stars
and brings light
to the deep ocean of our being
it evolves the inner lens of our awareness,
blends into our becoming,
and writes a hidden poetry of wisdom
into every moment
and every smile and glance.
A conscious silence
waking the eternal
while every fleeting moment
drifts away like streaming tides,
and inside us,
the whisper of intuition
like the echo of an unheard sound
weaves a flower inside our heart.
And in moments when
the conscious silence inside us
seems to touch
all the space between the stars,
the poetry of our human heart
is written in a sky across the Universe
and woven in eternity.
