huge silence

huge silence

There is a huge silence within each of us, beckoning
us back into itself.
—attributed to Meister Eckhart

it’s always there
waiting to be noticed
the fathomless well
calling me inward
into the heart
of the heart
I swim down
find silence’s support
how it buoys
how it thirsts,
those who remember—
held by the depth
thankful, I bow
