this past week was silence. stillness. rest.
lately, i've been living in extremes- basking in the noise and the hustle and then taking refuge in silence and rest. listen for the silence in your world- it is always waiting <3
it is silence that covers your secret voice
with blankets warmer than springtime
it is silence that softens the line of your mouth
when you realize that you belong, have always belonged
it is silence that reminds the tenuous beating heart
that is does not owe
the grinding world outside any precious affections,
that its glorious turning is enough, has always been enough.
it is silence that listens to the longing in your bones
and whispers, “please, keep going. you have to keep going”
