meditative poems

The silence of a rose


I held the stillness as though it were a rose.                                With care, with reticence, with beauty.                                           Silence welled deep within its petals                                             Far beyond the sweetest music                                                       And I myself was held As though a raindrop on the tip of a leaf                                                                                               As though a child on the lap of one Who is the music,                        and the rose ,                                                                                  and the silence.                                                                     Most of all, who is the silence.
