The Sound of Silence

DSCF2719

I sit in peace by the river,taking time to reflect on your world .

The silence only broken by the sound of birds

And The the rustle of leaves as the wind gently blows.

My mind fills with wonder and amazement

Thoughts of your gift, your world,

that you freely gave to us your adopted chosen ones

A world created for us out of love.

A butterfly flies past, so small ,so delicate , so colourful

A dragon fly with wings of lace, skims across the river

Then suddenly

The golden silence is no more

A plane flies overhead, then is gone and silence returns.

The plane brings with it the realisation,

That whilst you made this world perfect,

We, your chosen have made it imperfect.

The knowledge you have gifted us had been used for good and evil.

Man has moved from you in pursuit of their own needs and not the needs of other.

Forgive us Lord.

Show us how you would have us put this right, enabling  us to return to you.

With peace of heart and mind, safe in the knowledge of your enduring love.

Silence is returned.

To silence of mind, silence of heart safe in the knowledge that your love is enduring.
