Fr. Mathew Freni Karaluthara O.Carm
Stand still and hear with your inner ears,
the sound of the Lord walking in Paradise.
His lovely walk from afar.
Hear in the rhythms of nature, His creature,
in the tender smiles of the sun on a spring morning,
in the wobble of tiny birds in trees,
in the acoustic of drizzle,
on roses from a rainbow sky.
In the stir of little flowers when kissed by butterflies,
in the dance of a peacock.
In the flow of a stream,
in the tango of daffodils,
hand in hand with the gentle breeze,
and in the rhythmic movements of millions of His creatures,
the Lord God walks to me.
I stay quiet and hear the sound of His walk outside and in inside me.
