not moving

what is the movement
of a motionless man

is he a drifting
in the sea

he has drawn attention
to himself
by standing still

is he afloat
among the stars

the act of no movement
is a shift
away from this world

is he suspended
like a bird

the more he stills
the more
he leaves us

is he a reflection
of the sun

what is the motion
of the man
who is not moving
