Exult in Silence

How could I distill your silence
that breaks forth
and ripples the waters?

how does your still small voice
vibrate every molecule
within this pilgrim of old?

In my stillness
The quietness is loud
Like a thousand cymbals.

I hear it clearly;
it purifies my soul
One dross at a time.

In the stillness

Your word breaks forth;

Carries silence with it.

I hear it clearly;

It purifies my soul

One layer at a time.
