The image shows the dark silhouette of a cliff and against a calm sea and a sun-gold horizon.
Rock, sea and sky, what more could I ask for
The stillness, oh, the stillness
Where birds dare not fly, the air undisturbed
My heart slows in memory of a time unspoken
The quickening begins as I step into the salt sea
My mind invaded with primitive thoughts
An old-time movie, how long has it played there
How many minds have changed, standing here?
Did they notice time playing before their eyes?
Am I the only fool to stand wrapped in stillness?
My mind damaged by no sound entering
No help to rearrange my thoughts
What do I take back from this strange place?
Will it be renewed stillness of mind to carry me
through the remainder of my life…
