They want to tell (Day 617)


realize 
how clearly     hear
how they want 
to tell     a story  
  about their sorrow 
    and the hardships 
they faced  feeling 
through albums 
  myriad moments  
    complicated movements  
they flew all that way  
  simply to cherish a type 
of sadness     
a beautiful dance  simple  
straightforward 
as the moon
are      willing to stay up 
until dawn  expressive 
  hands gesturing 
    full-out 
to convey a meaning 
which     may be willing 
  to acknowledge  
    because it is true
