Stillness

Waves of stillness
Roll onto my shore
As I sink down deep inside myself

Safe

Safe from the turbulence outside
Free from bureaucracy and class

Quiet

The storm inside me subsides
As I return softly to my core

Peace

 

Inspired by stillness in response to Pico Iyer’s book
The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere
