Beyond words

There are times when words are mere tatters in the wind.

And sighs are too deep to be heard.

Such a time is this.

We must sit with it in silence.

Letting it seep into our very selves.

For we are not separate from what we witness.


There is a time to keep silence, and a time to speak (Ecclesiastes 3v7). Pausing today for the horror and devastation that is before us, especially in Afghanistan.
