In a secret place hard to find

hidden beneath the dented shield

of my consciousness,

is the Silence

that rescues from the eye of the storm.


Life, with its barrage of

attention demanding urgencies

showed no mercy or respite

as she hurled them -

intending to injure me vitally

use me up

beat me.


I whirled

I spun

succumbing to the vortex

sucked into the deafening roar

of panic

which is the messenger of defeat.


Where is the Hand?

Where is the Sure Hand that will rescue me?

Through eyes blinded by the hurricane of fear

I glimpsed the Finger -

the same Finger that touched Adam

as he appeared abandoned in that far place.


I stretched, I pleaded -

wept -

I grasped for the Hand -

I touched the Finger with my finger -

Like a conductor

the Silence flowed into the secret place, hard to find

and rescued me

from the eye of the storm.

Joyce James

It is a privelage to read your poetic
rendering of the Silence
which rescues from
the eye of the storm.
Like a Magi, you weave
tale of restless yearning-
expressing kinship with all living things.
Your appeal is both time-less and universal.
Thank you, Joyce, for sharing.
