The Silence

the silence is not empty
   just foreign
      for someone practiced in performing…
         in a  frantic self where
the words,
   a flood held back.

the dam breaks
   so grateful for an ear
      they tumble out
         and strike a Rock,
to settle in the pond
   to wait.

 

About Mary Herbert

I am a gentle listener, a woman of few words. My journey through life has been a spiritual one, as well as a physical one. My daughter, Katie, and I thought it would be interesting to combine some of our giftings/talents in a blog and see what happens. Let us know what you think!
