Looking for a home

Looking for a home

When you’re leaving
the house you thought
might be your home forever,
it’s an opportunity
to seek everything
you want in a nest.
A place that a homebody
can shore up,
can snuggle-in and sit on her eggs.
A place where friends
will feel at home,
will eat and laugh and muse.

A place with history
that has raised children,
washed them in the blue porcelain tub
and baked cookies for them in the creaky oven.

A place where creativity flows.
A spot for my easel
and a yard to inspire poems.

A place where love will flourish
and be celebrated.
A place that fits a big Christmas tree
and a dinner party for a cozy ten.
A place for rest,
for restore,
for reinvention.

A place to weather storms
and savor high times.
A place of whimsy and happy|
and soothing melancholy on rainy, red wine days.

A place where me can be me
Where there is no question
and there is no struggle.
