Silent World

My world is silent
Buried so that motion stops
God sent a Sabbath

The blizzard has ended, all is clear. Where I live, there was 18 inches of snowfall, 1/2 meter for those who live outside the United states. Compared to some areas, this was light snowfall, but it was enough to even stop road crews from clearing it — only now have they started the work so that everything can move again.

Churches have canceled their worship services, Even a wedding and a funeral have been delayed do to weather. Personally, the bad weather was somewhat of a mediation break for me. I needed to stop, and think, and stay in one place so I could better understand myself and the nature of humanity — both in its good and its bad points.

While I cannot link to a comment, I can reference it on March 25 Bomi [another poet blogger, who I enjoy reading very much] observed that we all have our blind spots. I have been spending time thinking that I must accept that for myself, and that if I need forgiveness, I should be ready to forgive others. I still have so much to do and think about, but it was divine Grace that stopped the world so I could think instead of acting with only passion. [more on this on this evenings post (Midnight, GMT, 7PM Central Daylight time)– I just thought I would add an extra note… marking the weather — we are safe, only a few buildings were damaged, and so far just one death reported here]

Last year also also had unusually strong and cold storms in the early spring.

    You’re so right Michael, it is good to be aware of our (and others’) blindspots in order to accept and learn to forgive. I haven’t had a chance to meditate this weekend, although I was planning to… I think “things” just took over.

    I quite like the Haiku, I haven’t seen snow since 2003, but I can imagine it keeping everything at a stand still… great time to meditate… true.
