Inside me was the stillness

Written by: Diana Rosser

Woven, high between bare branches
rooks nest gather where new growth sprouts 
amidst the stillness inside me.

A tiny blue tit twittering,
flitters towards a coconut, 
feeding the stillness inside me 

The sky, open, glistening blue,
white clouds sailing, a seagull soaring, 
through the stillness inside me.

A purple pansy perfect as the stillness inside me
until ............
people came
knocking, ringing, wanting
Then the stillness was gone.
