In the stillness
(A.J. Bunyard)

In the stillness of an empty fountain
she sees ripples formed by her panting
she feels the water's coolness on her tongue
is she enlightened
she is trained not to care

In the stillness of an empty fountain,
emptiness overflowing,
stillness calming,
the dog, soaked in stillness,
shakes the hide dry
and barks mindfully
at the squirrel.
