The nature of things

The nature of things

The nature of things
           as they are : silence
the true interior of the soul
           when all is at peace
when all is said and done
           it is the true nature
of the world
           stripped of the word

the heart beats in perfect harmony
           light builds over the sea
a gorgeous molten plain
           into which the moonlight
dips in the early hours
           while the innocent sleep
within their dreams or clasped
           within the arms of their love

John Lyons
