Poetry Thursday, life right now

It's so curious: 
one can resist tears 
and 'behave' very well 
in the hardest hours of grief. 
But then someone makes 
you a friendly sign 
behind a window, 
or one notices that a flower 
that was in bud only yesterday 
has suddenly blossomed, 
or a letter slips 
from a drawer... 
and everything collapses. 

This is exactly what it feels like lately...  it is reminiscent of those damned coffee commercials that would make you cry for no good reason.
