Stirrings of a restless mind
Invade the calm
Music becomes noise
Lines become frayed
Leaves are blowing
I only know the wind
But when stillness descends
The world changes
I see the kindness of a stranger’s smile
The perfection of a single leaf
A line becomes a poem
-Judy Nakawaga

Failure to Contain
Words of Sadness
