Home

At the darkest
It is shelter
It is place
place to escape
place to be
myself
alone
It is shelter
from other
from now
and then
It is sanctuary
an owl’s call
familiar
usual
It is memory
an old adage
A broken fence rail
An alcove of ferns
It is my father’s garden
My heart tucked deep
inside
the hollow of the wood
