Glass

A Poem by Seriana

Glass

I stand.

still

as the sand slips silently through my hand.

Time…

Looking out upon the vast horizon,

there is nothing but time.

Desert in all directions,

stillness.

Nothing moves but the pulse of a heart.

Quiet.

A tumbleweed in the distance…

but it moves,

pulling me from the stillness towards the hands of time…

and hope.

It is as though movement somehow means life, whereas stillness, which pervades in the desert, is symbolic of death. It's a matter of taste, I guess; some might say time and movement suggest a beginning, which must have an ending, and we all know there is only one final ending.

This is another very nicely done piece
Excellent atmosphere
