The River in Silent Stillness

fervent prayers
of a soul in total surrender
late into the night
dissolve into deep and dreamless sleep -
erasing pain
for the first time in years -
thanks to a gifted acupuncturist

I awake late
and offer morning prayers
by the river
in silent stillness

my spirit merges
with falling snowflakes
and time stands still
for what seems to be
an eternity -
together we dance
in suspended animation

so penetrating
I do not breathe
