2 Poems, “A Drink And A Wish From The Well”

“Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing” (Kahlil Gibran)

Based on that phrase, I like “well” better, and I was inspired to write this

a Poem and a Wish, for those who just need a little something



Only when you drink from the well of silence

will you surely you find your voice,

for to truly sing,

one must be able to listen,

especially to oneself

as well as filtering through this noise encumbered world,

and attention or quiet mind is needed to untangle the web of voices within.

Only then may the jumble of voices be deciphered and layered

to blend and ring out in harmonious luster,

shining light onto the self and others

wandering in dimly lit passageways

that beckon illumination.

Then may you sing,

allowing your voice to reverberate

love sweet love,

for, when you sing

in tune with the music inside,

you are in harmony with earth and spirit.

So, pause, breathe,

quench your thirst from the well of silence.

You need only to stop and listen,

and sing your song.


And… My Wish…From The Well

May those who need strength and hope and light,

may angels sing you a sypmphony of love to surround and uplift you,

cloak you in a blanket of protection,

catch your tears with gentle hand,

and bring you something to smile about
