Stillness, absolute zero



Finally winter! Cleansing, absence, quiet, beauty. Floating along, flush with the first snow, when --
Bam! Passed an overturned bus in a ditch.

--------------------------
What he wants is
stillness, absolute zero
when everything becomes
the same, perfectly still,
waiting.


Patrick Lane, from Winter
