Stone Pathway – A Poem

Half of my voice has disappeared.stone-path-Art

Those lost words

sit on my tongue like birds,

flying away even as I try

to speak them out loud.

As I begin the process

of learning the second language

I knew so long ago,

it’s as if I am

putting down a stone pathway

so that the birds

can find their way home again.
