At the Center, Stillness

“Be still.
Listen to the  stones of the wall.
Be silent, they try
To speak your
Name. Listen
To the  living walls.
Who are you?
Who Are you?
Whose Silence are  you?
Who (be quiet)
Are you  (as these stones
Are quiet).
Do not Think of what you are
Still less  of
What you may one day be.
Be what you are (but who?) be
The  unthinkable one
You do not know.
O be still, while
You are  still alive,
And all things live around you
Speaking (I do not hear)
To  your own being,
Speaking by the
That is in you and in  themselves.
“I will try, like them
To  be my own silence:
And this is difficult.
The whole
World is secretly on  fire.
The stones
Burn, even the stones
They burn me.
How can a man be  still or
Listen to all things burning?
