A Prayer for the 7th Day: Still Point, the Sound of Silence


After the kingfisher’s wing

Has answered light to light, and is silent, the light is still

At the still point of the turning world. 

t. s. eliot, from Four Quartets, Burnt Norton IV.

The sound of silence on the seventh day!    Listen.  This is prayer.  Listen.  This. is. prayer.
