Coming home

And how will it feel?

How will you know when you are home?

When you take off your shoes without a battle to fight

Or a dread to believe

Or an enemy to conquer

Or regrets that maim

Or needy reliance on others

And every fear a fool

This is how you will know

When in the maelstrom and struggle

There is no maelstrom or struggle

Just issues occurring, like clouds in the sky

And the truth of your being, this is enough

In all its speckled glory

Making do, making good, making wonderful

Fragile as a petal

Poised as a tiger

As wondering as a monk on a mountain

Welcome home
