Two Countries
by Naomi Shihab Nye

Skin remembers how long the years grow
when skin is not touched, a gray tunnel
of singleness, feather lost from the tail
of a bird, swirling onto a step,
swept away by someone who never saw
it was a feather. [...]

Read it on greatpoets here.

We lost my grandfather, my Papa, one week and four days ago. We held his memorial the day after my portfolio review, and the day before my graduation ceremony. I am... very tired.

::hugs:: I am sorry about your grandfather. I know there is nothing useful that I can say, so I shan't try, but I am wishing lots of good things your way.

Beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing.
