Stillness on the stilts

Stillness on the stilts
Thus life is so to speak,
Peaceful it renders the breathe
A sudden shake breaks the synchrony,
Miffed by changes unwanted
Mind stir the stillness awhile.

A shaken stilt a risky meet
Stillness on the stilts
Thus life is.

  1. Good poem, Cyclops...i have this quote on my table calender ....the thoughts seem to match :)

    "Once I knew only darkness and life was without past or future...but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living."

    ~ Helen Keller
