With gratitude

Updated: Mar 6

In these in-between days

with no official names,

when there is a kind of pause.

We cannot fully return

to the normalness of every day,

but the days of being consumed

by celebration and tradition

have themselves taken holiday,

I looked for a place to be.

I wandered into your world,

the one I visit by invitation

a brief stay, then I leave.

I knew that there was more

and promised myself to linger

when time allowed.

Dragged willingly by your words,

reluctant to leave this place

that spoke to me,


to write of its existence,

I wrenched myself away.

I know I will return.

Exploration of the whole

a necessity to me.
