The stillness
a pause,

A moment separate
and yet not

No sound encroaches
The rhythm of silence
unites the universe.

Then a low growl,
a  rumble,
a downpour, a deluge,

A storm,
a struggle,
a whisper of sun,

Thoughts tumble
then settle, Time
moves ever on

Each second
claims its own karma
Each hour is unique.

Live, laugh, love
No moment can be redone.
