Running out of words

Luke 4:42
Jesus Preaches in the Synagogues
At daybreak he departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowds were looking for him; and when they reached him, they wanted to prevent him from leaving them.

On a day filled with words
Mostly good words
Although a few did rankle 
And clearly - some words were sent by God
On this word-filled day
I crave a moment of blankness -
(Even as I produce more words)
On a day lived under fluorescent lights
Lights of the meeting room
Lights of the lunch time venue
Lights of the train journey home
I crave darkness
On a day filled with voices
Encouraging voices
Gentle voices
Wise voices
I crave silence
On a day filled with reports and deadlines
and opinions and responses
and all manner of requirements
I crave the undemanding, 
silent night
in which to dwell in God
who has been present 
in every aspect of the day
and who will be present
in every facet of the night.
