Listen to That Darkness

"Oh, listen to that darkness, listen to that deep darkness, listen to those seas of darkness on whose shores we stand and die. Now can we have you, peace, now can we sleep in Your will, sweet God of peace? Now can we have Your Word and in Him rest?" Thomas Merton, A Book of Hours.


I'll wait in this bright room.

Night rages, windows fade
to none,

and trees bend, thrashed
by your love-song.

For you I'll wait -
Oh when, oh
will you come?

  1. The storm without, the waiting within - beautifully expressed.
