Still Saturday: Listening for Silence


                         In the stillness before night descends

                              Breath catches and waits —

                                   Absorbing the presence of God,

                                        Listening for His silence.

    Beautiful. I haven’t seen any robins yet, but I watched 2 groups of swans sleeping on the ice. It was a special moment. Happy Saturday, Carol. Go Canucks!

      I saw my first robin yesterday, and Bob saw one a couple days ago, so apparently they’re returning. Seeing the swans would be magical. They’re so beautiful.

      Watching the Canucks’ game as I write!

  2. Oh, I love those words. Needed to read them twice. Did you write them? Nice to meet you through Still Saturday.

  3. Hi Carol, So lovely. For me, this special time with God is very early in the morning. Blessings from Lake Michigan, Ellen

    Your short poem is wonderful!

  4. Lovely words and photo, Carol. Breathing and absorbing.

    Thanks, Ellen and Sandra. If I were a morning person I’d enjoy the pre-dawn stillness, too, but my brain is full of cotton batten at that hour. It’s definitely not a creative time for me.

  6. Oh, Careann, those words…they breathe deeply of all that is holy waiting to be drawn in, savored, to nourish the soul. Love!

    You’ve caught the essence well.

I'd love to hear from you!
