Triolet Thursday - Triolet #20

Question: Why Do I Write?

Answer: It's because I feel light.
Holding on to thoughts, an idea, a word
silence, when a response doesn't seem right
Answer: It's because I feel light.
On paper or keyboard, my words take flight
In person, I'm more like a hummingbird
Answer: It's because I feel light.
Holding on to thoughts, an idea, a word.

Hummingbird as the title for a collection? So, I would need other poems that follow the same theme of being silenced...I probably have some more. Thanks for the idea.
