"Sit and be still
until in the time
of no rain you hear
beneath the dry wind’s
commotion in the trees
the sound of flowing
water among the rocks,
a stream unheard before,
and you are where
breathing is prayer."
— Wendell Berry (via songnsilence)
"Somewhere unwritten poems wait, like lonely lakes not seen by anyone."
— Anna Kamieńska, from “Astonishments: Selected Poems of Anna Kamieńska" (Paraclete Press, 2008)

"What in your life is calling you,
when all the noise is silenced,
the meetings adjourned,
the lists laid aside,
and the wild Iris blooms
in the dark forest,
what still pulls on your soul?"
— Rumi (via myworldmyhermitage)
