The Call To Live Awake (Day 7)

i find the silence louder
than any attempt to still
the night pregnant with prayers
the sky roaring with tears
and heaven longing for earth’s saints
what prayers have we buried
in the soil of our memories?
what promises have we not kept
letting faith vanish behind the mountain?
what candle can we light
to let even shadows find home in the dark?
what sound can keep us awake
that even noise can embrace silence still?
