white an absence of thought

descends slowly without effort

should consciousness struggle with release

rain an absence of  parch

descends gently without effort

should the front struggle in passing

Nuance an absence of hard

decsends as mist quietly

where rigidity leaks

calm an absence of chaos

resides without extent 

the residue of trauma expired

A thoughtful meditation. I cherish the parallelisms in the structure of the poem. A part of me wants to see it go longer and deeper, but I am quite grateful for the poem as it stands. Always a joy!
