On a rock in the woods

Her hair was heavy in my fingers;
as heavy as the full weight
of all the tears I’ve ever held back,
as soft as them running down my cheek.
My fingers delighted in that weight, that softness;
still unaccustomed to Joy,
I am gathering in my edges,
letting the remembered weight of hair
anchor me fully to the earth.
