The Blessing Of Silence (On An Early Morning Walk)

Poem By Shalom Freedman

I walk and sing and recite to myself
But suddenly I feel this as noise
I stop and hear
The blessing of silence-
I look up at the grey and white sky
And out at the open road in the distance
I walk and walk
And suddenly
I am overwhelmed by joy and happiness
Whether this is what they mean
When they say
‘All we ever have is now'
And ‘It can never be better than it is at this moment'
I walk and walk
Into the freshness and bright cold morning
‘It is all it will ever be now'

I didn’t want other kinds of words
I wanted poems
Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try

And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
