Toward Silence

Toward Silence

LENT

“What are you giving up for Lent?”
“You.”

“It must be something very dear.”
“Quite true.”

“What do you hope to win by it?”
“Peace.”

(As if one quenched the sun by saying,
“Cease”!)

CLOISTERED

There is a song in silence
That sound could never sing.
There is a light in darkness
That suns could never bring.
There is a love in loneliness,
That baffles ecstasy.
Call me, beloved, I shall not come,
I go…to Calvary.

-Earl Marlatt
