Engaging the Silence

“Engaging the Silence” by Pete Greig

first
there is
      prayer
and where there is prayer
there are
      questions
and where there are questions
there may be
      silence
but silence may be
more than
      absence
silence
may be presence
      muted
silence
may not be nothing but
      something
to explore
defy accuse
      engage
and
this is
      prayer
and where there is prayer
there may yet be
      miracles

poem found in Pete Greig’s God On Mute, p. 29
