Time Running off the Skin

Dropping into Silence

Abiding in the Silence, we cannot find where we dwell. There is no reference point. We have no address, but we are home. This is a challenge - to learn to live nowhere, living in all directions at once, yet, here.

simply being
and in
the moment
I'm lost again

so much
said
where words
melt inside
nowhere

like
ocean?
sky?
vast plain?
like
outside?
inside?

You send
words
to weary me
so time can run off my skin
and I drop gladly
into You, Silence,
to rest alone inside Your Arms
