Do you know the power of silence?
Why a witch choses with care
The words that leave her lips
And her thoughts thus bare?
Do you know the Pyramid of Power;
To Know, To Dare, To Will
To be Silent above all.
What good from being so still?
What the Witches know to be true
Focuses their power through Action
Saving the energy that would be lost
And make the Will lose traction.
Why waste a word, a precious word,
A piece of soul and sleeping spell?
Keep it quiet, keep it calm
Measured in beats as footsteps fell
Beneath your pacing feet through time
Whether in Circle working or outer land
Dancing ever with the shifting tide
Flowing out of Lady’s silvered hand.
Know that you will get there
Achieve the goal you Dare to Dream.
Will yourself through the Gate
Unleashing the strength of the Stream
But be silent with what you do
Holding focus, and choosing Words
Saving breath with steady steps
Be the calm within the storm.
In part this is why dialog is not the driving force within my written works. I have had it commented to be before that in my novels I do not have enough speaking parts. The reason actually dwells somewhat within the Witch's Pyramid: To Know, To Dare, To Will, and to Keep Silent. There is a seductive power in the Silence. This is also why I speak less than many.
