In the Earth’s stillness

In the Earth’s stillness

2-3 May 2015

The seagulls mewed on

Melancholy in their voice

Mere semblance of choice

Bodies may misrepresent

Inner choice of mind and soul

 

Tides renewed highs, lows

Ever returning to source

Where deep meets shallow

Inward, outward, light and dark

Weak, strong; one coin two faces

 

Sand seeped through my toes

Neverlasting steadiness

Of fading times’ strength

Wills willed hard, souls clung, boughs broke

Earth shivered out of motion

 

In the Earth’s stillness

Sand hovered and waters flowed

Winding winds rose high

Carefree thoughts wound down my mind

As summer’s whispers blew strong
