A Poetic Musing

Stillness in the quiet
Brings complete connection
With the inanimate and
animated.

Peace lives in the stillness,
Thoughts come and go.
Tranquility has encompassed
All that I am, not thinking
About what was or what shall be.

No chaos. No hussle or bussle.
Just the quiet noise hums
Not numbing but setting a
Melody of song heard
Only in the stillness of
Quiet.

I listen. I comprehend. I exist
In this cocoon ready made
At 2:36 am. I float in the
Ooze of this exquisite silence
My heart in rhythmic balance

I cherish this oasis and the
Bounty it brings.
I settle into its inviting arms
To rest all of me waiting for
nothing, having everything
I am at home in this grace
A space of tranquility and quiet
Stillness.
