poetry – sometimes

sometimes the leaving is necessary.

it is for remembering; a seeing, an opening perhaps.

the familiar is so very comfortable; like a warm light blanket on a cool, early Spring morning.

  • the smell of coffee
  • the inviting fragrance of an evening meal
  • the sounds of activity coming from the kitchen
  • or the home office
  • the clean bed linens or clothes
  • the fresh fruit on the basket on the counter.

so comfortable, familiar and appreciated are these.


sometimes the leaving is necessary.

  • to create space in which a heart can expand
  • to see what is otherwise blocked by the habituated and familiar
  • to appreciate what is always present, enduring and comfortable.

and, then…

the homecoming.

behold, everything becomes new.
