I hear a voice beyond the words spoken
A voice speaking in the silence between each word read
The voice calls to my heart and the spirit is led
Beyond the walls that house us in the filled room
Beyond all color, line and form, beyond the breath
Beyond all present to a time that fills eternity
To a place vacant of need
To that place of silent being
To that place of silent being.
