Stillness

Stillness


Finally, the oxygen
fills my head
and my breathing
settles
into its natural
rhythmic sound
 
The candle flickers
and eyes close
My brain slowly
calms
until I am at peace
where it is always found
 
Mind and body
in harmony
Outside world
closed off
Tranquility
all around
 
The stillness rejuvenates
body and soul
Clarity is the gift
to myself
for
I will not be bound
