Silence is Golden

Listen to the silence, in the quiet of the dawn

Leave your thoughts and worries for the world to muse upon

Sit softly in your armchair and close your weary eyes

Exult in merely being as a dove is free to fly

Listen to the rhythms of a life you yearn to know

Feel its breath inside you as a lover’s heart doth grow

Taste the new sensation, fear not its warm embrace

Touch the peaceful contours of the smile on Jesus’face

Hear the still of evening, let God walk in your home

Let Him help you enter into heaven’s golden throne

Leave your thoughts and worries for the world to muse upon

Listen to the silence, in the quiet of the dawn

    You are the only person I know besides me to use the word “doth”.

    It’s poetry after all. 🙂

    Yes, poetry it is indeed! Long live ideally placed words, beautiful language, and a well-written piece of literature!

    very nice!

    Enjoyed your poem Jon, feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders..

  6. Jonathan says:

    Lisa, thanks. Maybe I should stick to poetry, after all. It’s for ADD-afflicted writers.

  7. Becky says:

    Nah, ….stick to wine, women, and words!

  8. Becky says:

    I must say, Jonathan, I took those words out onto my balcony tonight. Thank you for the peace of your written piece. You craft with such beauty.

    Ah shucks! I’m blushing…:)
