The shelter

We all have a place where we go to be with ourselves for a while and to get away from it all... what is yours? When the storm rages, I retire to a corner of the world. Diamond set in a secret valley, surrounded by immaculate peaks. Magic in that place you breathe, a sovereign silence belongs to me, there is no abandonment, but regeneration. Although in the body the storm scourges me my soul does not rebel, because in that corner of the world it is sheltered. I am alone, but not alone.
