POEM: THIS STILL CENTRE
Here, indeed, is no ordinary spot:
no place on the map, in the cosmos,
is anything like it.
This still Centre is the one spot
where energy is actually discovered
welling up out of Nothing.
All the irresistible torrents
which swirl and roar through every other place
rise silently in this place,
never ruffling its perfect calm.
