welcome home

January 29, 2014

I’m here, he said
but it isn’t here
they are there
but it isn’t there

its in the dust
in the dirt
in the ashes

the dust particles per millions of lives
mixing, striving, swirling together

the dirt paths running like veins away
from a pulsing ocean

the ashes of life tested by fire
lived for others, and settled in peace

hard and strange, warm and welcome
close enough to call it home
