Suellen Primost is a cellist and her album ‘Shibui’ was a collection of brilliant pieces–it felt like I could write poems on almost all of them. This poem is inspired by the song of the same name.

The surrounding is deep, blue and light-filled.
Like the side-view of a two-dimensional picture, I can see myself inside a transparent well. With closed eyes and lotus posture, I feel like enjoying the depth of this aquatic setting. I seem to be meditating on the very scene in which I am already there.
The fluid acts like a container that allows me to remain un-wet.
I am able to see myself in this position because I made the necessary efforts to do so. I venture out; I roam around the outside world; I indulge and learn the lessons; and with utmost conscious efforts, come to realize that I am always there where I am.
There is a wide array of entanglements germinating the threads of further connections, yet far from this clutching phenomenon, I sit in a peaceful manner, free from everything.
I learn to detach myself from the very thing that tells me the definition of attachment.
I go out. I move around. I do a lot of things. Yet, I see myself sitting in that secure container, unaffected and unruffled.
