I seek the silence...


I seek the silence...

I seek the silence of a secluded lake,
Of a moment in time
When the past is suspended,
Of a mountain valley
Where travelers rest and look,
Do nothing more,
And solitude refreshes—
The likeness of eons uncountable ago:
The seventh day.



Sleeping Muse II (1917) by Constantin Brancusi
