2,500 Thank you everyone

and I don’t really know what is magical about 2,500, maybe 3,333 or 7,777 might be more magical.  We’ll just skip 6,666 ’cause that’s not the kind of magic I’m talking about

Sometimes – a poem

There are times when words fail.
So many things that should be said.
So many things that could be said.
But in the cold light of day, silence,
and a tear are all that cross the rift
between broken hearts.

In grief and sadness
how can any word comfort,
or dull the hammer blow?

Sometimes the right word is no word.
Just a touch and the tear that says it all.
