Stillness That Moves – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

dVerse Poets – Open Link Night




Stillness That Moves

That feeling
when stillness moves,
vertiginous upheaval
transfer of heat,
second law of the
thermodynamics of love
but should it cool
then let the grasses
caress you to a
stillness that moves.

  5. When does the heat transfer stop?

  14. Enjoyed reading your poetry. I love a good poem that’s longer than three lines and 17 syllables.
    Your poetry flows like a river. That’s what its supposed to do. Kept my intrest to read all the words and turn the page.
    Well done.

  16. Beautiful 💖
    Specially the title “stillness ..”
    What a combination .. stillness and move . Brilliant!! I like oxymorons.
    I love the word stillness 💕 just the sound of it brings solace.

  17. First read, I felt the contrast of stillness and movement and how they could co-exist, such as being still while our minds race or sending positive energy out to the world as we sit quietly. Second interpretation was the way stillness can move one’s soul, the tranquility that can be felt so immensely that it awakens you. Either way, this poem is beautiful.
