Listening To The Season

Tears came with a knowing nudge,

“you”

and the kitten climbed the skinny crepe myrtle higher,

leaves fell like feathers and I underlined, then reread.

“Doing those deeply unfashionable things…slowing down, letting your spare time expand, getting enough sleep, resting…is a radical act now, but it is essential. This is a crossroads we all know, a moment when you need to shed a skin.

If you do, you’ll expose all these painful nerve endings and feel so raw that you’ll need to take care of yourself for a while.

If you don’t, then that skin will harden around you. It’s one of the most important choices you’ll ever make.”
