Bringing this one back...Poetry Thursday

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, right now, is my life, minute to minute.  I am bringing this one back because life keeps lobbing grenades in my attempts to heal.
