Treasure Island

Ananta Madhavan


Still, From A Film


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.
