Trains, buses, frenetic
starting and stopping, an end
to a week of busy movement,
busy activity.

I see you: a beacon in the distance.
I am gaining ground, coming nearer all the time
to a quiet space, a gap, an empty breath.
I am approaching you:
a bubble of serenity in my boiling week.
I wonder if you know.
