This past weekend a spiritual director/friend of mine inspired me to write this piece.

No Protection from Silence


I will not protect you from silence

Your heart will feel torn open wide

Or break as glass with shards cutting deep

There will be no place for you to hide.


When you hear nothing around you

And all you know keeps falling away

A bright light of knowledge and knowing

Will turn your dark night to a sunny day.


With all the noise around your tomorrows

Yesterdays filled with tumultuous regret

With silence stilling the intensity of your life

I promise I will not offer protection yet.

Nice. I yearn for that "silence"
Reviewed by Mr. Ed
Silence can sometimes be quite loud.

"When you hear nothing around you
And all you know keeps falling away
A bright light of knowledge and knowing
Will turn your dark night to a sunny day."

knowledge and knowing are always so utterly beautiful
some regrets are good they keep one from repeating mistakes
which too are valued...

Your Deep Thoughts Shine Dayvid

Excellent, thought inspiring, poetry.

Wonderful ~

I think of every excuse under the sun not to meditate, then I get there, sit down, and voila! I always feel this smile creeping up on me. Peace.
Reviewed by Elizabeth Russo
"... yet" that is the keyword to this piece. Protection comes not in words or deeds, for now, but once the silence is allowed to seep into the soul, then you will receive your offer. That is my interpretation, anyway. A very thought-provoking write! ~Elizabeth

good stuff...very good stuff

Yesterday is full of resentment, tomorrow full of fear. Some people need to be hit over the head with reality as it is "in the moment" before they finally see. Nice work.

Dayvid, no truer words have been spoken, I still, at times, wait in Silence..

Much peace, love and light to you,
Reviewed by La Belle Rouge Poetess Of The Heart
In silence we find the center of who and what we are. Thought provoking poem Dayvid.
