Grass embracing

The girl laid on the ground

Silence in her mouth and crickets in her ears.

All around her children shouted and played

And she wondered “what if I’m bound to stay here?”

After the first moment of shock she realised

She had nothing to lose or fear

And that, after all, it wasn’t such a bad idea.

For years she had tried to join the others playing

Always opening her lips for talking

Words looked like bubbles to her, escaping her mouth

But we know it already, bubbles don’t make a sound.

So there she stayed, mute after all

She embraced the grass and said nothing anymore.
