Reopening the pages,
aligning myself with the words,
wondering if there’s time to experience
a delicate tingle,
an enlightening surge.
I may have cast aside the others
within these pages
for far too long,
will they accept my return,
can we rejoice,
can we sing a jubilant welcoming song?
I don’t know whether or not
the time will become important or determined,
but I wonder to myself,
will I send my words to them?
Will I dare share my thoughts and opinions,
when perhaps they shouldn’t know of these,
the time to absorb these has long been avoided,
allow my words to be breath like a summer’s breeze.
