Everything can continue while thoughts still,
and there is no doing even in the doing.
ACAMAR ends a day in the moment when thoughts still,
the un-doing of things when doing is done,
when all things have been put away,
the course finished.
Swirling water in a a stirred cup flowed,
Thoughts settled like the dust of leaves to the bottom,
creating space of dreamless sleep.
From the still expanse in the clear space,
where there is still breath:
At the river’s end it became something else –
the tumbling motion undid itself,
transformed under greater force:
to new form,
The streetside stream falling to another level below.
a bottomless vessel that remains full,
where through falls the stream to settle,
a still flame’s column of air.
ACAMAR followed the end of the day,
the last thing said,
the final word.
No more conversation;
the babble of the brook succumbed to the faucet.
The liquid stopped moving in suspension,
the living flame stood still.
To exist in a hurricane torrent,
a flame surrounded itself with stillness.
Among least still of all things,
its motion outmatched,
persisted only through greater stillness.
Conceiving of their release and revival,
eightfold of flame and like brought me,
Surest of my existence,
they bore the knowledge.
I am their result.
I am their change,
I am brought of their resolution.
Their suppression became stillness,
and they found their return,
