Home


Home

Days of adventure
followed by
coming home
sinking back
into comforts
and loving arms
I sigh

Familiar birdsong
on Sunday morning
foot sliding on cool crisp sheets
then gently skimming
his ankle
the soft silky dip
between hill and heel
I sigh again

No need for lights
I know my way
by touch
by sounds
by smell
by heart
I sigh once more

This place I call home
where we dance
cheek to cheek, barefoot
on cool tiles,
share stories and secrets,
wide smiles and tears
as necessary as the adventure
this sigh worthy life of mine
