Poetry

Meeting

Silence is the divine ground of God.

It holds all the elements needed for a new life to emerge in the form of sound.

We find truth in the ground, not the words that arise from it.

But spoken words do not interrupt the silence.

They are expressions of the truth found there,

whose roots remain planted in its fertile ground.

Yesterday someone planted a seed,

and today the ground gives forth a shoot of idea,

which grows into a flowering vine of words.

Tomorrow, we hope, it will bear the fruit of right action,

and many more seeds.

When we speak, let it be first to remind each other of this,

as we sit together in this lush garden of silence.


composed by JP during worship at the Ithaca Friends Meeting, 5 Aug 2018
