There is a Stillness

Kevin Ribble

There is a stillness that brings peace to all life -
Like a winter's wind silenced by the cyan
Touch of spring, her sky even bluer
Than the summer when I was born -

It is this quiet that I know when my heart
Opens thus to the eager smile of your
Prismed-color joy, the likeness of which
I have never felt nor seen before -

What emotion! What sensation!
What a daring event that captures the history
Of our lives in a chronicle of righteousness
Upon the path of eternal heart!

And in my moment of reflection and discovery
I see your face set the spark of knowing
That this stillness I feel is God's love for you and I -
For the whole of all mankind.
