Why do I go silent? What brings me back?

There’s no simple answer to the question of why I go silent – both here and in my life. ┬áIt just happens. And then – one day – I pass a threshold – I break through the lid that has slammed down on my mind – to see the sun once again. I’m cherishing this moment of hope because it will fuel my return the next time I’m in the hole.

Wintry Walk

Wandering thoughts freeze and fall to the ground

Crystalline ache shatters and tumbles into the footprints of strolling lovers

Who feel only the cocoon of their heat

The sidewalk opens its heart and invites it all

The heat, the ice, the tears…
