Still, From A Film - Poem by Ananta Madhavan

What flows appears
not so much to flow
as to happen at our pace,
our seeing and our tense;
what flow appears to stay
still in all particulars,
What flows appears to move
by jerks of animation;
The frame remains and what
is motionless
Gives impetus to all
that moves within.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A mood I tried to verbalise in 1975.
