‘The Stillpoint’ – Poem

The poem ‘The Stillpoint’ was written by a client whilst on our Mindfulness Course at Penny Brohn UK National Centre.

At the stillpoint

Between the outbreath

And the inbreath

I have sometimes glimpsed

The profound comfort

Of infinity;

The endless sense

Of possibility.


In that sanctuary of timelessness

Leaves wait to unfurl

And tides pause before turning;

Universes are about to be born.


Such an aching sense of expectancy.

Stars hang silently in the heavens.


Whilst I,

Oh so rarely,

Have understood a sacred connection.
