Golden Key

12 Sep

Take the earbuds out of your ears,
listen to the silence.
Turn the television off, you
can catch the news later.
Listen in the silence.

That smartphone in your pocket,
mute and leave it in the bedroom.
Begin to hear nothing.
Thousands of inhales and exhales
will go by today unnoticed,
say hello to five couples right now.
Slowly. Slowly.

Is what awaits in the day
more urgent than this moment of
uniqueness? Of course not.
In the silence you will meet yourself,
the real self, the unadorned self.
Don’t be impatient.

The self you meet holds a
golden key to a door
to an encounter,
to a mystery.
A key. Yes.
Take it.

Let the silence be filled with the sound
of the latch opening, the door moving
in a familiar ark
Now step through.
