Stillness - Poem by Barry Middleton

here there are no quiet places
even the desert speaks to me

the forest whispers its prayer
the stillness is only in the mind


stillness is the secluded peace
beyond the din of a restless city

stillness is beyond dimension
where impossibility is fashioned


stillness is the silence that falls
on the sanctuary of lovers

as in their fevered embrace
a hushed kiss banishes the noise
