By Andrew Thornton-Norris – London, United Kingdom
The element in which the spirit lives,
Like fish in water, birds in air, is this:
Silence, where communion is not
With those on earth, but is in solitude.
The element in which happiness
Exists is contemplation, where we see
The nature of the universe within
Reflected in the universe without.
