he calls serenity the deep blue shadow that chants to him every night by 

he lay immobile, waiting
he knows she is there for him
because she chants to him
when he can’t sleep
it’s the only sound he tunes in to
when his mind is feeling rusty
the music of her deep waters
a crash of persistence
the hush of retreat
she chants it again and again
massaging the minuscule pieces of earth
she has worn down over centuries
and with each crest pushing into his world
his worn down mind
and reshapes itself

and in the morning
after the sun has turned the top of her
into liquid gold
he goes out to pay homage to her beauty
and give thanks for the rejuvenation

so he calls her serenity
the deep blue shadow
that chants to him
in his nights
