Stillness

by Kelly Prentice

Stillness… how rare and fleeting,

If only waters ran deep,

Shallow pools lack depth and meaning.

If we could dive in with all of our soul

Instead of treading water,

The slightest disturbance empties our bowl.

Reactionary. Disturbing.

Then chaos evokes a stream of breath,

Deep waters from within.

Time stands still, life comes back,

Only the surface disturbed.
