Hardened Cleft

Unhappy with immovable mass
he remembers water
how wind rises in the south
recalling motion something moves in him
a breath where there was constriction
a relief to the constant pressure.
Those who stand and wait appear foolish
but within there is treasure
of stillness containing the soul
ready to sing out from the hardened cleft
of something deep and joyous
even within stone.
