Sanctuary

Silence
reigns
over the
darkening sea

The nunnery empty
on the distant isle
cowering
in the fast flowing channel

What is wind to us
becomes a storm
whispers
turn to shouts

The sanctuary
amidst old stone walls
stands strong
and will abide

  1. The stones stand
    And beside them,
    I shall abide.
