stillness freed

September 24, 2005

she peered cautiously into the mirrored water
afraid to disturb the perfection of stillness
though the journey of her lifetime prepared her
she was frozen in fear before the clear water

and then she erupted in a joyful chuckle
and the smile was set free from her lips
as she knew that the water that reflected her
was only as still as the look on her face
