vow of silence

by Christos Polydorou

I want little
I want less
I want nothing

vow of silence

I want centre
I want calm
I want gravity

vow of silence

I want soft whispers
home-cooked meals and stories
walks when I get restless
chasing reality for the photograph

I am an ineffable saint
I say less
mean more
with what I do

vow of silence

no more drama
this is beauty
this is longevity
instilled into the fleeting moment

now of silence

time caught
like fish in a net
because
you deserve that

this is
love
this is
an open heart

and zen
because
I am

vow of silence

do not stir
my cerebral circles
do not shake
my visceral chains

vow of silence
