Light traveled over the wide field; Stayed. The weeds stopped swinging. The mind moved, not alone, Through the clear air, in the silence.
Was it light? Was it light within? Was it light within light? Stillness becoming alive, Yet still?
A lively understandable spirit Once entertained you. It will come again. Be still. Wait. — Theodore Roethke, “The Lost Son”
