The Silent Well

 This morning I fell

into a well of silence.

Not a push, not a jump,

just a breath and an instant

and all is still

like a snow covered morning

at first light.

Before the mind stirs

Before the heart wants

something else

this silence

enters me, washes me away

into the joy of this

undying moment.

– Lisa Ernst
