let the world….

.
.
.

let the world do as it will…
.
what pale light lingers of endless Winter days
.
fades from these eyes averted,
.
far away from this reluctant silhouette’s
.
anonymous imprints in greying sidewalk slush.
.
.
.

let the world do what it has…
.
i measure my walk lightly here in frugal steps
.
and speak less amidst the throng,
.
not belonging where i don’t an eager
.
trade of so many years in such meager wisdom.
.
.
.

so let the world do what it must…
.
that our words and value lie less in volume
.
than in selfless devotion’s daily intent.
.
this grateful heart returns Home

warm with aromas of pine scented candles and

food so lovingly prepared,
.
the eclectic comfort of all we’ve collected
.
of familiar voices and heartbeats
.
and know there is no world i need but ours.

    A sweet tribute to the place and person you call HOME… and the snuggling pups just add to the sweetness. Makes me smile 😀

    • thanks so much for understanding what the photo represented wunderwench, i began to have doubts
      that the poem would be misunderstood because of it. and yes it is a tribute to Home, few things are more meaningful to me.

    My heart melted seeing your adorable dogs! And I love your poem. The first part of it made me think of Taoism and its teachings to go with the flow instead of struggling against it. Your poem has a kind of peaceful acceptance, particularly at its conclusion. I know you’ve mentioned this isn’t an easy time of year for you, but I’m glad you can take refuge in the comforts of home.

    • Miranda, you’ve understood every last thing i’ve tried to convey in this poem, ty for that. there is finally an acceptance,
      you are so spot on. i’ve never done well in the world, never did well in groups and yet i always yearned to be accepted.
      so the acceptance was finally finding someone who loved me despite my many flaws, and that allowed me to accept my limited
      place in the world as a feature, not a flaw.
