Join us for the next poetry discussion on the chosen poem How Quiet by Judith Harris. Read it slowly, ponder it, reflect on it, let it speak to you, even pray it. Then join us for discussion.
By Judith Harris
How quiet is the spruce, the wind twills through the uppermost tier of splayed leaves. Now the song of a bird like the squeaky lock over a canoe’s oar, followed by startling chirps, the sky pushing its clouds like sailboats, and I think, what kind of God keeps himself secret so that to find him out we have to seek, as children do for something like the beetle scuttling between grass, hidden in plain sight.
