Finding Home

A poet
once wrote
something
about
me,
which
made
ears find
their
way through
paved
rouge and
magenta
streets.
I smiled,
then
realized
that the
poet
with
the oh-so-kind
words
was indeed
the image
of me
quietly
driving
his dream;
it was
the
same
image of
yesteryear’s
efforts
left to
pasture,
like
you did
when you
asked
Aphrodite
for a
day’s rest.

See, I’m
home
but I’ve
yet to
see the
door’s
opening.

I’m getting there.
Just you wait.

  1. Do you ever find yourself really paying attention to the miles you tread between the [here] & [where]? Do you? (sort of rhetorical really but mostly for you to answere quietly to yourself)
    It’s so never about the journey really…but it sure is all about the arrival.
    The doors have always been open…you just haven’t noticed them yet…you will….for now, it is as it should be….because you’re not really quite ready to walk through them just yet anyway.
    Take your time….the door won’t close.
    Journey on and enhale that bittersweet arrival just as you should and not a moment before& then my friend…you’ll walk through those colored doors as if somethin to prove.

  2. By the way,

    Make full of the journey.

    • You’re right on so many levels.

      One of the most significant journeys we allow ourselves to take is the journey that doesn’t make us fearful of the outcome, or force us to move to abruptly for sake of time. See, I enjoy the pace of my own heartbeat, because it keeps in sync the quiet solemn nature of why I exist. So, yes…I do pay attention to the miles I tread between the here and there because in doing so, I’m able to find perspective in the words “I am”.

      No worries, this journey was designed for me to take many moons before my name was etched within those celestial clouds.
