HomePoetry Stories Stillness


Stillness is an art, a challenge, a marathon,
An elusive quality to strive for.

Life’s distractions are simpler,
Busy-ness, activities, filling the diary,
Padding the mind with the next thing to do.

The white noise of chatter
Externalises focus,

Like the buzz of traffic,
A sea crammed with boats,
The skies packed with planes.

So, in this threatening, frightening, enforced stillness,
It is hard to perceive the soul benefits.

We have to dig deep,
Embrace our frailty, face our fears, let go

So we can discover
Surrendering to stillness
As a blessing.
