Inside Me Was The Stillness

Poem By Diana Rosser

Woven, high between bare branches
rooks nests 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.

Comments about Inside Me Was The Stillness

This is a beautiful poem about how being with nature complements the sense of stillness and peace.
..............but sometimes we only cherish that stillness, tranquility when we can compare it to the hubbub of daily life, its noise, its speed.....another gem

Leaving

He left
gradually
like water
evaporating

This Day

It is morning and the promise of day
sweeps across the sky.
Meadow grasses oscillate gently in the
dolce wind.

I Am Here

Supposing I became the cool breeze that slipped
through your early morning window brushing your day and cheek awake,
would you know me then wrapped around you holding you safe?
Supposing I became the gentle sun that broke your first steps

The New Bedroom

The new bedroom,
which I built in my head
for what seemed an endless time waits,
with full boxes for her return.

The Shady Path

If your reckless mind unobserved
wanders into the deep dark sea,
then swim towards the lapping shore
and walk towards the tall oak tree
