Can you hear it?
Amidst the raging storms,
the chaos of every voice screaming to be heard;
A whisper for the soul.
Can you feel it?
In the tossing and turning,
the earth shaking bombardment that takes every last breath;
A strength is rising.
Can you taste it?
After all the numbing,
consuming and ambling in the onslaught of excess;
The relief of contentment.
Can you smell it?
Through the scorched earth,
the rotten foundations and the flood of wreckage;
A fresh breeze of renewal.
Can you see it?
Greater than the looming shadows,
dark depths of oceans and power of tempests;
The Calm in the Storm (reflections on the psalms)
