gently speak

By Vanessa Walters

gently, speak
are we longing
for the same days
in our own worlds,
it must be a dry sun
and nothing new, but
I imagine there might be
sometimes a cold chill
when the moon comes
or when a thought brings
you back, I wonder
if the evenings are darker
without a plan, and
how much comfort
is in a mother’s care.
I wonder how long
the days might feel
if I was only still
