Layers upon layers,

between the breaths of words,

the gentle caress of a lover,

the sense of belonging with another.

It may not seem like much on the surface,

with shouting and screaming happening on each corner of the globe,

but there is much being said by the quiet,

by the colors less viewed as vibrant,

show-stopping, extroverted.

A deep-rooted, introspective beauty,

ridges, speckles, emanating from within.


Much happens within the details of stillness.
