Three Proverbs for a Poet Who Almost Stopped Writing

By Sister Lou Ella Hickman. I.W.B.S.
(for Jill)

easier for rain
not to wash the streets
than
your pulse of inner music not sing

wait as the fire in your bones falls to white ash
it will teach you everything

after the silence
words will find you

––––––––––
“(Writing) helps me breathe.” – the writer
