Still …

All is quiet;

the heavens wheel above.

The world turns

and the night follows the day –

the world turns

and I,

powerless, turn with it ..

and my nights follow my days.

Comets hurtle by

in icy trajectory:

stars are born and die;

the moon commands the sea,

but I feel

a slow, still centre in me

connecting to the same mystery

in you

that no planetary power can move … .

      Hello T.C. ..

      It’s very nice to see you here. Thank you very much for your kind words .. I’m happy to know you’ve enjoyed these thoughts.

      How about your studies and your writing? I hope both are proceeding well.

      • Both are doing very well. I’m on my last year of college thank god, and I’ve decided to publish my first novel here on wordpress, so writing has been going well also. Thank you for asking. =)
