I’m Here

Listen! and believe me.

Believe me when I say,

That I know what the birds say,

That I know what the trees say,

And I know what the winds say when they brush their soft, soft fingers against my cold cheeks

BUT            I do not know what I say

And when the trees, and the winds, and the birds speak across my mind,

I have nothing to say to the trees, and the winds, and birds.

So I               just listen,

EMPTY.

Just me.

                Just empty.

    If this is about you – I understand, for a long time ago,and for a long while this was me too.
    That said, I don’t consider I was ’empty’ rather words would not come forth although I had so much to say – eventually I crossed the invisible bridge.

    I wanted to respond to your question here in case you didn’t go back to look at the challenge. Today’s flower is… Passion Flower Clematis or Clematis florida ‘Sieboldii’ it symbolizes ascension. A person born on this day has high expectations for which they happily strive. Admired by others for your clarity and singularity of purpose. Your ideals may be lofty but they are based on truth and love. 🙂
