Snow it was meant to be, poured tears instead…

I am learning,
—am wondering still.
Every crisis teaches me,
enriches me
—about me
—about the world
that I think is mine.
Of all moments of crisis,
the first one is the most important.
For it is like
that moment after –
the first note of cry, of calling…
the first smile
the first burp
the first love
the first failure
the first success.
when I didn’t know
—just what to do next…
