your piece of bark with quills

i haven’t

written

yet

or

spoken much

since the last time

i found

the way

to your

place inside you

that you protect

  1. This is elegantly beautiful! There’s a silent joy that your words speak of. Maybe the triumph of being allowed to enter protected territory has left you speechless. (Am I reading this correctly?)

    • i wasn’t quite sure but you are so right. i am triumphing silently.. in this speechless time. thanks so much for clearing that up for me..
