Within the motionless of being.

Within the motionless of being.

A Poem by andrew mitchell

So soothing your voice
drowning in the waves of silence.
The stillness now beating echoes
harmonious to the tune
of being alive but
still quiet in the moment.
In a corner
a shadow of solitude
sits amongst clouds
motionless within its wilderness.

this reads to me like a very meditative state of mind, if in regards to self:) if it is in regards to someone outside of self, it feels like a spectral quality:) either way it feels like a nice place to be

'.. a shadow of solitude - sits amongst clouds - motionless within its wilderness. '

That, andrew mitchell, is the truest of unpretentious calm. A place where real people want to be, want to find hands to hold and words with the clearest of meanings. Great but gentle phrasing here. A dream-maker.
