The Promise of Silence

We who would truly learn to

Know ourselves must sit

Each day in silence and

In company with

Our own soul.

If we sit in the noise

Of other people’s knowing

We drown in their wisdom.

When we sit

In silence with ourselves

Then our own small wisdom

Has its space to be heard.
