Actions May Speak Louder - Dec. 23, 2022

but doesn’t hearing

I love you

steal a bit of breath

hover in the air

as it pauses outside you

waiting to enter?

in our world

tenderness is always

a mild shock

rare enough that we must remember

where we left the key

that unlocks the heart’s door

so what that the hinges

squeak with rust and

cobwebs must be cleared

I still get very quiet

when I enter with

that kind of gift

its long echoing voice
