Magpie Tales 139: Home Is Where The.....




this coming/going home 



we waited for these moments, 

we whispered to the hours, 

under leaves as blankets, 

warmth drawing us inward, 

nearer to our sheltered hearts: 

we willow in reverence, 

recompense for days lost to effort, 

this season of our shadowed silence. 


Midnight Snack, 1984, by Curtis Wilson Cost
