she speaks by writing

she writes.
when no one watches.

she writes.
when she is alone.
and leaves herself behind.

she writes.

not on pages.
not with ink.

she writes.
on the grains of sand.

each grain.
a chapter
a book
a life
in itself.

she writes on them.
and sets them sailing.

the wind in their sails.
she is.

taking her words.
to distant shores.

languages change.
with each roll of the grain.

she speaks by writing.
to friendly strangers.

she dedicates each word.
in her gracious solitude.

with gratitude.
she writes.

when no one watches.
