Visit the Monastery

Visit the Monastery

Visit the Monastery

Where the Silence echoes
In the farthest distance
Away from the blast of the
Heavy rumbles of the cars

Peace evaporates from
The chimney’s top
From the burning
Of books
To warm the wandering heart

Their thick blanket of love
Covers the cold feet
Wet by the heavy rain
Of life’s difficulties

Their gentle worship
Incense the sleeping heart
Racing the stream
With the push of an ocean

Their study room
Smile with books
To chew upon
On the field of contemplation

Their gates is left open
Day and night
For the strangers
That has lost its way

Visit the Monastery
To tap the richness of nature
In its gentle solitude

About Michael Ogundele

writer, ardent reader and a lover of nature. fell in love with writing fours years back and I've been engraved in her arms ever since. I share my little way of writing poetry and reflection based on the Mass reading of the day on this space. I hope you would enjoy reading as we ride the same chariot to the leafy greens. I reside in Lagos, Nigeria. Do follow me and together, let us jump into the ocean of my ink.
