The Staircase of Stillness

The Staircase of Stillness

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

We have created a time where our air smiles like a precious gem found within a storm.

"






We have created a time

where our air smiles

like a precious gem

found within a storm.

Each spoken sentence

we find to be filled

with purpose,.....

sound and warm.


Regret does not glisten

nor is it placed in this time

dressed up as hurt

impossible to understand.

This is a place

where one can find

the staircase of stillness,

silence at hand.


Showers of love

fall as stars in this time

along the places where we sail

on a subtle breeze.

We can see their reflections

turned inside out......

like a smile

You're welcome, Neva:-)
A smooth, easy to eyes poem. I like how the poem takes your interest higher and higher and peaks at "Regret does not glisten", which is my favorite line and quote from this poem! Very nice :)

This poem has a calming radiance about it. To be still, truly still, is to be free. This is a lovely poem.

Fantastic ... I love the sort of victorian air of it and the idea of a present and alternate time so good!

Your first stanza plus the picture immediately takes this reader into a perfect place . It has rich, glistening earth colours . And, tho still, there's a curve of invitation in those steps .. don't you think

As to the ending, i want so much to be there .. ' We can see their reflections ~
turned inside out...... like a smile.' There's enormous and precious warmth in that smile, Neva.
