Curly Hair and Rainy Days

Curly hair and rainy days,
vulnerable unruliness --
transgressions and untamed,
secrets revealed.

Spotlight in the darkness,
thoughts exhumed, examined,
cares, paralyzing critique,
writing blocks.

Chill on fingertips, toes, tip
of nose, warmer than the cold
fright, fear, not-enoughness,
child within.

Sunlight, late, returns, thaws,
random pause, appreciation,
flowering petals of mind, blossom,
courage of heart.
