#augustbreak2013 Day 14

Stillness

stillnessA blank page, the moment between breaths, white noise, the still dark of early morning, the sky resting between day and night at dawn and dusk, my feet in the sand and eyes on the water and ears full of the sound of the ocean, the moment just after a dog sigh, a pause, a gap, the riot of bees in my garden before the sun gets too hot, shavasana, resting in the middle of a good story, the moment right after laughing, a long walk, the moment after hiking up and up and up when you finally reach the highest point, a heron flying the length of the river, the moment they stopped breathing, stopped suffering.

I'd love to hear what you think, kind and gentle reader.
