    The Winter of Listening

    All those years
    listening to those
    who had
    nothing to say.

    All those years
    forgetting
    how everything
    has its own voice
    to make
    itself heard.

    All those years
    forgetting
    how easily
    you can belong
    to everything
    simply by listening.

    And the slow
    difficulty
    of remembering
    how everything
    is born from
    an opposite
    and miraculous
    otherness.

    Silence and winter
    has led me to that
    otherness.

    So let this winter
    of listening
    be enough
    for the new life
    I must call my own
