Solitude, this quiet of God's grace
These echoes of thought
The resounding stillness of soul
The gathering of time
The heart now known
Within this silence, the Word
Within this darkness, the vision
Within this chamber of God I dwell.

  1. Messages of like consciousness - Today's art and poetry post, "Solitude" and Deepak Chopra's post for today: "If we are quiet, we encounter moments of pure silence, and through these gaps we can glimpse the deeper level of the soul."

  2. This Poem touched me in a special way. I went through a period of what seemed like solitude. That is when my attention was grasped by God, fully. Thank You for your words. For making it easy to His perspective and the events were much like you write in this poem.
