In these quiet spaces,
I become temporarily deaf
to the meaningless noises
that seek to define me.

In these quiet spaces,
my soul is nourished;
surrounded by silence,
my spirit soars upward.

In these quiet spaces,
my focus turns inward,
knowing that His Presence
is co-mingled with mine.

In these quiet spaces,
the renewing of my mind
occurs as my life, is…
humbled before Him.

In these quiet spaces,
His divine, sacred wind
envelops my frail essence
with indescribable peace.

In these quiet spaces,
consumed by His Presence,
I sense undeniable power
of God’s authentic Love.

I like this..you know? we can go there and witness God`s love. when I first started reading this, the thought was different. everyday I get up and take a good look inside me. reminder what I did the day before, and what I`ll do today, or try. show kindness, tolerance, forgiveness..I always forgive myself and others at the end of the day.. this write reminds me of that very thing. good reading this.

What a beautiful poem and reminds me of the hmyn by Ralph Carmichael -

"There is a quiet place
Far from the rapid pace
Where God can soothe my troubled mind
Sheltered by tree and flow´r
There in my quiet hour
With Him my cares are left behind".

Every day I need this time of solitude to re-energise and feel close to God. Your poem is a nice reminder that we can find the quiet place anywhere....in the middle of a busy day or even the midst of chaos. Thanks for writing your lovely words.
