Your silence

Lord,

drown out our noise
in the thunder of your silence.

Wash away these chattering thoughts
in the sea roar of your wordless presence.

Erase our shouts and incantations,
the carnival barkers of my prayers.

Flood me with the river of you,
water up to ceilings, houses carried off.

Saturate this world with your silence
and hide it in every little thing.
