Dinner guests

dinner-guests

Dinner guests
travelers with long necks
with strings attached
begging to be touched
brought to life.
 
Obliging their request
placed each one in my lap
felt them breathe as I hummed
my fingers slowly gliding
up and down they smiled
in return giving me
wings
to fly beyond yesterdays
losses that haunt me
so much.

  1. Reminds me of how us beings want to be touched and be brought to life – some begging for that. We all just want to be heard and seen.
    Do you hear me, do you see me? So incredibly important. 😊🙏🏽
