Reduced to Tears


The nerve of silence quivers in the intense longing of the heart
and everything is reduced to an expression of tears.
And I rediscover compassion, intimacy, and serenity.
It is, after all, a contemplative expedition in the depths of my humanity.

How could I not be moved to tears?
