Magick, Music and Ritual 9 - The Silent Now 04:40 The Hermetic Library Anthology Album - Magick, Music and Ritual 9 by Arthur Loves Plastic

<p>

The Silent Now
(Moscatiello/Conley/Stanton)

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

THE SILENT NOW
by Craig Conley

</p>
<p>

Listen to this golden moment

</p>
<p>

just before the rain.

</p>
<p>

Hear the leaf that's gently gliding;

</p>
<p>

the cardinal's hushed refrain.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Stand upon this precipice,

</p>
<p>

the point where language falls away.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Words should be like glass, transparent,

</p>
<p>

windows seen right through.

</p>
<p>

Leaving just the poet's meaning,

</p>
<p>

were the glass removed.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Here on the horizon's edge—

</p>
<p>

the vagueness of destiny.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Conclusions and

</p>
<p>

beginnings coexist

</p>
<p>

in the silent now.

</p>
<p>

The corner of

</p>
<p>

this world upon your map

</p>
<p>

plainly shows you how.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Listen for the pause in music,

</p>
<p>

the stillness in the dance.

</p>
<p>

Calligraphic circled spaces,

</p>
<p>

emptiness enhanced.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Thread through the needle's eye,

</p>
<p>

and sew on ad infinitum.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Conclusions and

</p>
<p>

beginnings coexist

</p>
<p>

in the silent now.

</p>
<p>

The corner of

</p>
<p>

this world upon your map

</p>
<p>

plainly shows you how.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Conclusions and

</p>
<p>

beginnings coexist

</p>
<p>

in the silent now.

</p>
<p>

The corner of

</p>
<p>

this world upon your map

</p>
<p>

plainly shows you how.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Pause here long enough to notice,

</p>
<p>

life is all in jest.

</p>
<p>

If you refuse to verbalize it,

</p>
<p>

you can't be outguessed.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Weave intention with compassion,

</p>
<p>

a sutra is a stitch in time.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

The predicate

</p>
<p>

and the antecedent are

</p>
<p>

silently understood.

</p>
<p>

I'd spell them out

</p>
<p>

in a wide vocabulary

</p>
<p>

if words only could.

</p>
<p>

 

</p>
<p>

Conclusions and

</p>
<p>

beginnings coexist

</p>
<p>

in the silent now.

</p>
<p>

The corner of

</p>
<p>

this world upon your map

</p>

plainly shows you how.
