the silence in the mind


the silence in the mind

is when we live best, within
listening distance of the silence we call God …
It is a presence, then,
whose margins are our margins;
that calls us out over our own fathoms.

What to do, but to draw a little nearer
to such ubiquity by remaining still?

by R. S. Thomas
