A Poetic Reflection for Sunday
TRINITY OF SILENCE
In hamlet chapels & in great cathedral halls,
Across the awful tapestry of time,
The FATHER of all silences abides,
Unfathomable Architect divine.
In human hearts the SON of silence dwells,
A silence echoed in a darkened wood,
So still the feather kiss of gentle rain,
Like thunder cracks the reigning quietude.
The singing silence of the high and hallowed hills,
A haunting SPIRIT rides a whistling breeze,
The wayward wind is Lord and Master here,
Where kestrels hover solely by decree.
Antony Hebdon, parishioner of Sacred Heart, Hove
