Still

The sea is still
Distant moon's pale glow
Reflected on water
Meeting at world's edge
Not a cloud marrs
The view of the stars
Cold and alone this night

The air is still
Thick and heavy, it
Covers the ground
Smothering
All that would move so
Nothing does

The ground is bare
Smooth rock shines
In the night it lies
Uncovered and uncaring

Distant thunder rumbles
Tension builds
Waiting for a spark
In the stillness
