Standstill

It could not have been more clear,

The calm before the storm, they said.

They said it over and over and over again.

Pushed the waves, prepared for a hurricane.

Got the boats back to the shore, kept the nets at home.

But the water stayed put. Standstill.

Clear blue. Transparent.

There is no storm at the corner.

Deep Breath. Dead Silence.
