After the storm

Luke 2:13-14
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”

After the storm
there's an eerie stillness
when every sound is magnified
And if we stop just for a moment
we will hear sounds 
that we haven't heard in a while
Not because they weren't there
But because we didn't pause to listen
Like bells on the still night air
And the song of angels
And children's voices
arguing to make sense of it all
It's like the ferocity of the storm
clears the way
for the gentle sounds 
too fragile to be heard
in the normal daily rush
But waiting to be discovered
when we take time
to listen.
And once we've heard them 
They remain
bringing depth to our hearing
bringing awareness
of another world.
A world that is ours to inhabit.
Filled with the mysteries of God.
