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

I really like this piece and all it's implications. Beautiful imagery. I love the last part...We can see their reflections



turned inside out......



like a smile

To imagine all reflections become smiles when reversed is a great concept :)

You are in a lovely place here, Neva...of tranquillity and knowing, and content to allow the stairway to lead you where it will. I would love to be here again. Thank you. P.

Neva, as always you blow me away with your stunning poetry! This was honestly such an amazing, flawless write that I and the others thoroughly enjoyed. You write with so much passion, you put your heart into every piece you write and I truly love it. You are such an amazingly talented woman! :)

"the staircase of stillness,"

My favorite line, shows that there was nothing but walking towards, nothing but walking towards love. You never cease to stun me with your lovely writes, the word choices and structure, blow me away.

the word staircase implies ascension, which, when compared to love becomes an uplifting experience all by itself...i never cease to be amazed by some of your word choices and the tender ways you find to lace them all together , creating gorgeous tapestries of poetry and prose.
