Stillness

Stillness
 that momentary pause resilient
  as all the world is drawn into a lull
   where the loud hush of being
simply is culled.

The quiet stillness
 when nothing stirs
  silence rides the trees
   and soft, kinder prayer whispers
haunt us in life's mysteries.

Stillness
 frozen moments in the night
  when dreams take over to be
    the ghostly images formed
live untouched longing to be free.

The quiet stillness
 where time still moves forward
  the hurried world rests in thanksgiving
   focusing on rest unaltered
release from the act of living.
