Turning Still


How many times has the sky turned since these walls were lived in?
How many dark nights since these windows shone with light?
What is this place? What happened here? When?
I wait but there is no reply, no answer. Only the stillness.
Emptiness points into infinity ... infinity turns into emptiness..
