Stillness

In the busy-ness of the day,

it is difficult to gain the solace

of silent, mindful inactivity

 

Life’s persistent contradiction

is to slow the pace

 

It is anti-social

to disengage,

to silence

the constant buzz

of social media

 

Our essence dissolves

in the miasma of industry

 

The deliberate choice

to be unhurried,

to allow earth

to enlarge our view,

to sweeten perception,

to enliven dulled pores,

to rejuvenate spirit

 

Brings the possibility,

to surrender to the space

Let the rocking boat still

 

Then

possibility

becomes a tryst of vivacity

 

The day enlarges
