we sit in stillness

in moments

etched

upon the hearts of those

neither seen nor heard.

(and it is enough)


lives flow out

in all directions

following the arc of wind and rain

to dance upon the line of heaven,

and impart

the secret

we hide from.



we touch the source;

are of it

and it is of us.


we sit in stillness

in moments

etched

upon the hearts of those

neither seen nor heard

(and it is enough)

      Audrey- I've read this aloud several times to savor the way it sounds- much like a meditative chant. This one is so beautiful! It speaks to me of happy memories with loved ones and the hope and promise of joyful reunion with them when our earthly lives are over. I am finishing my tea before bed and will hold onto this lovely image as I drift off to sleep.

      All the best- Cat :)

      Beautiful! It touched my soul of being still - which for me is hard to do! Be still and opening my soul - both!

      oh! I think this is so true. I know for sure.

      "Audrey Howitt sits in stillness

      in moments

      etched

      upon the hearts of those

      neither seen nor heard.

      (and it is enough)"

      Yes you do, upon many hearts and faces you've never seen before. Your word(s) sits deep in their hearts like a refreshing liquor to be drank with such pleasure.

      I love this piece! yes, it is indeed enough :)

      When I walk through nature I often feel like this -- great connection and abundance. This is marvelous. You might consider branching out by adding original photos and publishing poems and connected photos together in a book. You have gift.

      Surrounded by life....by the abundance of it all...at times, for me at least, it is overwhelming. You did it again, my friend. Have an abundant Sunday.
