Deepening: A Poem by Ed Martinez

Deepening

Deepening

For a brief moment I heard and felt myself as a young boy.
I caught this moment in time.
There was an intense deepening in my spirit, a deepening inside my soul.
I took the spot by the still water where children came to play.
Screaming, jumping, running, taking in all the excitement of their day.
I knew the inevitable that would follow as the children left.
Silence fell and in the silence was the stillness of God.
