Movement | Stillness

the stillness in the center of the tornado

can be found

by letting go of all the peripheral

debris that you fear losing 

the holding on that you invest

vast amounts of secret, silent energy

to maintaining 


there is a stillness at the bottom 

of the ocean 

no matter what the moment brings

a storm of wild waves

soft, trepid breezes pushing the water

this way and that

or a calm surface, like a smooth


giving back to the sky it’s face


you are that stillness and calm

it cannot be manufactured or crafted

it can only be discovered and experienced

it never leaves nor vanishes

an anchor grounded and rooted

in that 



let the sunset drape every inch of her colorful gown

upon your skin and face

let all of that light sink

down to the very depths of 

your ocean
