STILL AIR

 
High headlands displace the sky

Forming a cradle of motion, a place

Of directions, whirling compasses,

And the dances that hide longing

For more than ground beneath the feet.

There are sweet pools below these bluffs,

Where still air and endless depths

Bring us closer to both ends of life,

Bring us closer, each to both.
 

- David W. Mitchell
