Not moving, remaining in place.
Free of sound or agitation, tranquil.
Without perceptible waves, as water
not flowing. Not effervescent,
flat, as wine. A photograph,
one frame or print, life stilled,
distilled. An image lured, remaining,
lingering. Persistence, this is also
stillness. Dogged inertia, at this
time as in the past, moments blurred,
heavy and paused in their being.
Even, in addition, an implying
of growth or increase, to a greater
distance or degree or depth. The place
where spirits are rendered purer,
any apparatus that clarifies.
