so many more things to love about you than i knew…

dear home

i love you

i love that in your embrace

i have known the taste of tears

but not tear gas

i love that the sound of sirens there

usually lets me know

help is on its way

i love that your waters

largely do not taste of

desperation

&

that i may write

& speak poetry there

without threat of imprisonment

or exile

so far …

these things

i have not known

to love you for before

but now

these things

i will remember

& cherish

every day

    1. dear you
      i am so glad to hear of rain
      and fragrant dancing in the moonlight
      and new beginnings
      even as i am missing them
      & you
      & i will save a dance
      for a warm breezy time
      when i am home again
      and new works are old
      xxx
