One with the forest that drinks of the lake

One with the lake that whispers to the sky

One with the sky that shelters the waters

One with the earth we dare not defy


An earthen brush to touch the sky

Concedes the night with weary eyes

As shadow spirits begin to rise

To paint the dawn of no disguise


It’s a rare dawn that speaks sublime

Of peaceful wonders, a moment in time

When earth is calling to hear her rhyme

With natures’ song that speaks sublime


There’s none wiser

Than silence that speaks

Spoken in whispers

Ancient and deep


In quiet reflection

We find what we seek

Whispers the wisdom

Of silence that speaks
