unspoken truth


The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.

They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.

Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.

It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

It rises at one end of the heavens

and makes its circuit to the other;

nothing is deprived of its warmth.


Psalm 19:1-6 (NIV®)





Unspoken Truth


Surprised in the moment,

Mesmerised by a night sky

Resplendent in wordless wonder,

This expansive extravagance

Holds me transfixed;

The eloquence of starlight: 

Unspoken truth whispers to my soul.


Invited to the shared meal,

I know such welcome and warmth

In this place of plenty;

I know and am known,

Secure in the certainty

Of my seat at such a table:

Unspoken truth restores my soul.


Joyfully I receive the gift of love,

Offered in a moment of risk;

This adventure of the heart,

Arms opened in vulnerable invitation 

I find myself tightly held,

Made complete by this embrace:

Unspoken truth strengthens my soul.
