A week in retreat

//A week in retreat

A week in retreat

Heading off to retreat in Portugal.
Thus stillness visits for a week in the absence of words here.
Yet the coming and going is open-ended.
And presence is neither here nor there.
How sweet it is.

    Port; yes how sweet it is.

    I hope for your sake that you stay there for a while – in the sunlight of Portugal- and enjoy it.
    (Like you said; the going is open ended.)

    Stillness is not eager to leave either.
