Be Still, My Darling

Still life.

…before muscles move an infant’s limbs

…as fog suspends like plumes

…when sleep is motionless

Life is still but barely for a moment.

…before the sun peaks the horizon

…as sleep laden eyes adjust to light

…when the sound of your breath catches your ear

Life stirs and becomes no longer still.
