In Blissful Silence

In blissful silence

I sit simply listening,

Breathing in the sounds.

Tell me…how long has it been

Since I relished birds singing,

Crickets in summer,

The first flakes of winter’s snow

Wind rustling leaves.

It has been far, far too long

Since I’ve reached out to nature.

Too busy with life,

I seem to have forgotten

What is beautiful.

Perhaps it’s time to slow down

And take in God’s creation.


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
