and some days…

i was cleaning out my files and came across this journal entry. a recent family matter, combined with this morning’s post, made me want to share:

and some days the words are quiet;
their voices still.
they rest their stories on cushions
and avoid my eyes.
no amount of begging arouses them
and I am left alone
wondering if I will ever tell stories again.

and some days the children are quiet,
their voices still.
they hide their hearts under covers
and avoid my eyes.
no amount of pursuing engages them
and I am left alone
wondering if I will ever have children again.

it is amazing, to create a thing and let it be.
