Silence

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving
and for once could do nothing
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and threatening ourselves with death.
Perhaps the earth can teach us
as when everything seems dead
and later proves to be alive.

Pablo Nerudo, Keeping Quiet

 

One thought on “Silence

  1. Yes, it’s just like that. The Earth is a great teacher about acceptance, hope, and healing. Simply listening, the lessons come.
    Thanks for the reminders.
