Still life

“And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.” —Pico Iyer

I drop a pebble
into my own depth
when it hits
I feel the ripple
spread out
into liquid light
no flashlight needed
for this journey.

With my lips
pressed to the ground
Mother earth
rolls onto
my every breath
shows me
the face I had
before I was born.
