Feel Life Again

share post

I am learning to feel life again.


The sensations from slight movements,

the sharpness of songbirds who seem

as if they’ve just arrived,

the tears that drizzle down my cheeks

and splatter onto my sleeping pants.


Is the light streaming in from the windows

brighter than they’ve been?

Is the stillness amplified from

sensitively tuned ears?


Earth is being born before me;

I am its midwife, readying

my hands and heart to catch

the life that is coming.
