The Lull

A Poem

Stairs on Lake Michigan

This quiet

REST LESS NESS

that permeates the atmosphere

Those in-be-tween days

Marked by grey cold

cloudless

skies

Not a flake

Not a drop

Simply grey upon grey

languishing in the distance

Waiting for that quickening

beat—Remembering

And yet the pulse of that thought exhausts the inner crevices of the mind

So sit

     recline

          drift off into

the listless days that emerge after the rush

                                                                     after the flow

past the upward swooshing ferocity of THE SEASON
