Radio

No words can describe
My excitement

The thrill of finding my Voice
The thrill of shared speech

But who listens
To my Vignettes
To my Memoirs
Fragments from my colourful life?

Jilliana, like Humpty Dumpty, fell off her wall
Picked up the fragmented pieces
Memories good and bad

No words can describe my new found passion
 For living again
Making up for 'the lost years'

The lure of other countries
Other cultures
Other beliefs
Other traditions
Other languages
Other music
Other cuisine

A visual feast
A mosaic of tastes
A cacophony of sounds

Freedom at last
Rising like a Phoenix rising
From the ashes of forgotten memories

No words can describe
