learning to hear that small still inner voice--a garland cinquain--for Melinda Schmeider
Prayer

Learning
to be silent
requires an act of will
abandoning all the chatter,
reaching.


Drowning
in the stillness,
adrift in misery,
abandoning all the chatter,
healing.

Reaching

for a prayer,
an anchor in the dark,
something moves in the quietude,
listen.

A word
from the heavens
requires an act of will,
God bending to your surrender,
freeing.

Willing
to be silent
stirs a subtle whisper
of a sweeter grace, not rupture,
joining.

Moving
with a wordless
unspoken thanksgiving,
as language ends, wisdom begins,
learning.
