Humble, majestic beauty
fills me with tranquility,
silence save the ripples
that reach inside of me
and soothe my soul so tenderly
as I contemplate for once nothing,
transported to a place so serene
that exists in a dimension unseen.
Transfixed on the bowed fowl heads dipping,
I bow too and enter with gratitude respectfully
and float weightless in the pond of this reverie,
sanctified in the sacred sanctuary.
I feel the goodness of all eternity
in the magical waters slowly swirling,
and when I am transported back to reality,
the Fountain of Placidity becomes a part of me.
