In the silence

In the silence what revelations

Will be fulfilled?

.

Maybe the blessing

If merely being still

.

Is enough consolation

For the striving soul

.

Enough wisdom

To be distilled.

.

Desiring to Bless

 Always desiring to bless

            the arms once memorably

.

Spread in pain

            wait to rest

.

And bleed love

            that will soak the spirit

.

Dye in new colours

            the garments of life.

.

from ‘Returning to the Father’, a sequence inspired by Henri Nouwen’s book about Rembrandt’s painting of Jesus’ parable of The Prodigal Son
