That space where we love...
Is where hugs come first, and hello comes second.
Hugs wrap round... spanning relationships and life moments.
In that circle of flesh and soul...
We celebrate. We console.
We say 'hello' and 'see you again soon'.
We teach. We learn.
We remember, and we forget.
We wake. We rest.
We melt. We resolve.
We whisper, 'I know'. We open, 'Help me understand'.
We protect, and we free to bloom.
We dance. We still.
We inhale... and exhale... breathing breath shared.
We close the space between
And we claim home
On the sidewalk,
In the rain,
In a field fragrant for harvest near,
And conference rooms wrapped in glass sea views,
In kitchens warm with vanilla baking,
On mountain's peak and valley's cradle,
In the quiet evening still and in the crescendo of noon.
Yes, home is in that place.
We pour... we drink love.
We circle round life. And life circles round.
This place narrowing between... this is home.
