coming home can be.
frightful, in snow or heavy rain,
dark the days are, the evenings darker.
forecasts bring gloom and panic, then are cancelled
minutes later, the phone kicks off.
ice is predicted, mountains white
i may be reborn in this valley….
now there is a story, meanwhile
arriving home to candlelight, fire the same
and hopefully all will be well a while.
the mouse, the bear,
are quiet ones.
the word count is 62, the years are 8,
and i dreamed it was 2 months ; longer
than all the other numbers.
i may be a long time coming home.
