Stillness

6 August 2019

            Today the woods were still. Nothing stuck out to me quite like the stillness of it all. All around me the world was motionless—the wind wasn’t blowing around me, no leaves were dropping from the canopy, the birds weren’t flying above me. It was quiet—the river wasn’t babbling, the leaves weren’t rustling around in the trees, no bird or animal calls kept singing in my ears. Everything seemed at rest, undisturbed, perhaps even calm. The world seemed stagnant, lifeless, inert.
