one day it just happened and the sun came out and you remembered everything. i had been lying there, face to my knees, letting her fly fly away, freeing the pain, and it was as if the world opened up. days and months and years had gone by yet one moment i healed. one moment she asked me what remained inside and i let GO. now i am melancholy in moments but relief in miles. i’m quietly walking along, free.
arching and bending, i feel. my heart exposed, breathing in with me, looking around and seeing that this is real.
the earth is mending again and pushing forth buds from the ground, and i am seeing all of this, all of us, in that first glimpse of your smile.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. ~Hal Borland
