The Valley of Silence
~Fiona MacLeod~

In the secret Valley of Silence
No Breath doth fall;
No wind stirs in the branches;
No bird doth call:
As on a white wall
A breathless lizard is still,
So silence lies on the valley
Breathlessly still.

In the dusk-grown heart of the valley
An altar rises white:
No rapt priest bends in awe
Before its silent light:
But sometimes a flight
Of breathless words of prayer
White-wing'd enclose the altar,
Eddies of prayer.

    I love that line as well.It brings me comfort as i think of Spirit holding me close.

    You have brightened my day, thank you. My morning did not go as planned so I just let it go with the wind. I feel that I am trying to move to fast so I'm just taking a breath and letting go!
