Silence

Source:thetelegram.com

There is a space

where there is no sound

and senses are enhanced by silence –

the aperture to the falcon

hanging in mid-air

by the string of a breeze

and eyes catch the 16th notes of dancing leaves

the soundless melody

of breathed streams swishing through them.

What was sought once

is shed for freedom.

All coverings dropped

to receive the last of what is

revealed as Prize.

Grace Colella has completed the requirements for the Masters in Arts and Ministry in Spirituality at Regis College. She is an active parishioner at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Toronto.
