Not putting a name on our experience

Be still
Listen to the stones of the wall.
Be silent, they try
To speak your

Name. . . .
Do not
Think of what you are
Still less of
What you may one day be.
Rather
Be what you are (but who?) be
The unthinkable one
You do not know. . . .

Thomas Merton, In Silence
