Spirit Lights The Way

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.

~ Colette

Unexpected thaws cause grief-hardened hearts to defrost . . .  ice crystals pooling into puddles.
