Mute


sitting
still
unmoving
barely breathing
completely
silent
except.....
the eyes


Drink in
thirsty
noticing, astute
bright lights
hidden by long lashes
curled up, waiting
watching
seeing
learning

And feeling
feeling...
the purple
and the gold
light, bright green
teal
dark, deep, resonant blue
Feels all
and does not comment...


Watching
see...it?
learning
Feeling
outside to in
climb
hand-over-hand
but

no words


because inside
is not words

can't describe fire

or darkness

or enormity


better
just watch

for now...

Wow. That's all I can say. You B"H really have such a great talent for writing.

BTW This is my first time on your blog and I really enjoy it. I feel like I can relate with so many of your posts (like the one about if people who don't suffer are "small people") Thanks and keep it coming! :)
