Stillness

For any true reflection, we need stillness.

The water calms and the image clears.

The mind calms and the thoughts clear.

But we need the wind, waves, raindrops

and disturbances to know what stillness means.

A different world for my modern steps.

Digital, noisy, manmade surfaces, marked trails, traffic.

But in a still moment – under trees,

beside talking water – an ancient voice whispers.
