Beside Restful Waters

by Gregory Hermann



“Every day love corners me somewhere

and surrounds me with peace without

having to look very far or very hard or

do anything special."

--Thomas Merton

Every day love corners me,

A call to live in a certain way

A whisper to be still and know

A whisper – nothing special.

Every day love corners me,

A brief distraction from

Doing one thing more

And I listen to that same, new voice – nothing special.

Every day love corners me,

Sobriety is my gift

A breeze touches the business

In a moment of now – nothing special.

Ever day love corners me

Pain dims hope

Then loves me in a moment

Of another's touch – nothing special.

Every day love corners me

In undeserved panic

I am not worthy

Till her tear calls my love – nothing special.

Every day love corners me

Silence disturbs

Unfamiliar silence asks

A moment of vision.

Every day love corners me

We sense the need

We hear the moment

We are the love – nothing special.

Every day love corners me

She knows

She beckons

She knows – nothing special.

I am knowing.

We are,

We are.

Namaste'
