I wrote this piece last December for a friend and thought it would fit nicely on this site. I was going to change the name because of the similar name on Gina’s recent posts, but decided it reflects perfectly the kindred spirit we’ve found here. We are all so different with different stories, but we respect each other and hope you will feel welcome here too! Vanessa
“They I said it wouldn’t happen again,
a sight not to be seen for another __ years.
“My ears filling with expert voices
trapping the scurrying feelings
insecting in the inescaping
infecting the elucidating”
nourishing the swell
between us –
your eyes telling me
under the indiscriminate trees,
which are as beautiful within the flood as without.
smiling in the sudden illumination…
