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.
