Returning

Just write the words
let them fall like soft snow
to cover leaf and soil
silently-no one watching.

Meaning will come creeping
language lighting the way
to reveal you to yourself
gently-a soft leading.

In time-slow time-you will return
to what you knew-becoming-
to shape fresh knowing
softly-vision slowly clearing.
