My spirit cannot gain a quiet moment,
It cannot hear your voice out in the world
Amongst the mighty torrent that surrounds it
From morning radio blare to traffic roar.
Too many images bombard my tired eyes
And holiness is lost
Within the tragic sights
Of murder, war, and cruelty on nightly news.

A breath of quiet calls me to the wilderness
To heal my inward ears and eyes;
To give my soul and spirit rest
In open desert and oasis shade.
I pitch my tent beneath the spacious skies
And count the heavenly bodies bright above.
Each star pronounces healing to my trouble sighs
Through the Creator's vast and wondrious love.

Here in the wilderness, my restless anguish is released.
My soul and body, mind and spirit
Open to renewal, like flowers in the sun;
I am freed to see and hear the truth again.
I prepare to walk into the world once more
To offer myself in God's service,
To give myself in Christ's love.
Here I am, receive me; here I am, send me.

Reviewed by Connie Faust
The quiet is so rare and precious; few appreciate its wonder and value. I love to wake in the night, when distractions are few and I can spend time with God undisturbed. My soul is more open to Him at times like that.
This is a wise and wonderful poem.
