The Witness

It stood there, this old, rickety shack, isolated from the rest of the houses in the village, a perfect witness of the passing of time. Does its walls remember faces? Does the posts remember the stories of life this modest house might have seen? Does the house remember the names of the people who might have lived there?

Your life, like a flower, is a miracle.

Sitting alone, doing nothing but pressing the shutter button while marveling at the passing of time.

bamboo raft
On a raft—that’s where I imagine myself today—rejoicing in the blanketing quiet and calmness.

There were too many noises in the past months, too many to write in here. Some were pleasant; they were like bright streaks of light swirling around me and keeping my heart warm. The unpleasant ones, they were like shadows looming over me. Both kinds overwhelmed me and, in the process, kept me mum, rendered me grasping for words. I let them chase the words—my words—away.

But this day is different. Everything is quiet and calm. And the words—my words? They’re gathered around my feet to keep me company on my next journeys. Yes, they’re back. And I’m back. Here. Now.

And I love that.
