Silence,

It rung from wall to wall,

A bell who lost its metal tongue.

The church filled,

But no breath came,

Not a sigh of relief,

Nor in fear.

 

Silence,

A thick fog holding the church in its clutches,

No prayers,

No Amens,

Just waiting …

An eternity of waiting.

 

Silence,

The kind that quells adults,

From whispering muddied waters that only spill out the ear,

For once they swallow back the puddles,

All waiting in a rare unison.

 

Silence,

The kind that even children recognize,

Frogs went un-kissed,

Waiting in their gutters,

For tiny hands to pick them up,

 

Until a voice breaks the silence,

“she’ll be home”

 

The church was filled by grace,

And I,

Had barely been born.
