Quietness – a poem


Quietness – a poem

By Diana Hunter McGuerty 

Like diamonds glistening in glaciers
Or sapphires sailing in the sky…
I listen to the sound of silence,
Expecting no reply.
I do not need an answer
To questions never asked.
I simply wait… and listen…
In the quietness, I bask,
Like a creature of deep luxury
With no great need to fill…
A winged being just balancing
On a high and windless hill.

It comes to me on silken waves,
This sense of relaxation
From all that seems so immediate,
I am merely one creation
Of that which lives and breathes alone
Yet is part of all around,
A spirit force of energy
Enveloped in lack of sound.
Cushioned from the noise and stress
Of that which is imposed,
My inner source rejoices as
The bud becomes a rose.

Resplendent in the shimmering waves
Embracing what is me…
A moment of such a rainbow hue
Upon my distant sea…
Beckoning, though silent,
As my wings now sense the breeze
That filters through the atmosphere
To set my being free…
And welcome it to distant lands
Where the climate is soft and mild,
And I… the one who patiently waits…
Become the newborn child.
