Even when – I was little and my mind was troubled I would seek clarity. I believe we all seek answers to our problems and we develop self-preservation in the way we would seek simplicity to those moments that trouble us the most. In my case I found understanding and the answers in the silence of the night in my Rocky Mountains. Even to this day I will drive to the mountains and find a spot to contemplate the things that bother me the most. Does it always work? Not always, but most times if I listen to the silence of the night.
Silence Of The Night
When in doubt just listen to the darkness of the night,
For in the empty silence your worries can take flight.
Climb the highest mountain is all one has to do,
Listen and be one with nature all night through.
As the darkness deepens, so does the silence of the night,
Raining stars of light above, always give us second sight.
Close your eyes as nature stirs the wind and builds to a breeze,
It is these exact heartfelt moments like this that we all need to seize.
The darkness and silence of the night speak volumes to us,
To understand and comprehend the silence is the ultimate plus.
Dropping your guard and opening your mind and heart is the key,
Sitting all alone in the silence on the mountain under an old aspen tree.
With clouds cleared from your mind – silence will tell you what you need,
If you truly listen to the silence – never once will the silent night mislead.
In this darkest of the night all we seek in the wisdom of clarity,
Nature, the mountain, and the silent night bring all of its sincerity.
Now you know the secret of the darkness deep and silence of the night,
Listen well and take heed – because the dawn makes the clearness take flight.
