Echos of a Life

Echos of a Life

The whir of the air conditioner
The hum of the refrigerator
The deafening sound of silence

Straining to hear the echos of children playing
The twitter of birds
The conversations of friends
The sounds of a life
My life

Reaching out to the echos of the past
I am surrounded by walls
The world collapsing
Emptiness and sadness reach deep into my bones

This is not a life
This is not what I expected
This is all I have
Now what do I do?

Fabulous at 50 living and writing in Appalachia
