The Stir And The Still

ripples

Ripples in the still water …

Some stone I threw in playfully when the calmness created boredom,

The refulgent rays of the sun dances … as the waves spiral…

But the movement disturbs the arrangement…

And I lose the oasis of serenity …

Fading are the Patterns I am used to…

this dichotomy baffles me…

And yet the derangement entertains my spirit…

The chiaroscuro of the ruffled waves agitated by the breeze puts me in sheer mayhem…

What is more dear, the stillness or the undulating adventure?

My heart and mind start another row when my soul whispers to dive in and sit underneath

I observe the play of the circling water from a distance …

The rollicking sunbeams don’t escape my eyes…

And yet I watch all the flurry with a placid state of mind…

It is a moment of serendipity, witnessing the light and shadow …

the animate and the inanimate …

the stir and the still all together….as one

* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
