we are the the modern-day Sky Sailors.
without a compass or clock we knock
on the ornate door of the Unknown
looking for a home
and some of us find it -
others don’t want to.
an intangible concept bursting with many forms,
I have endless ideas
definitions and decisions about
what this word means.
Home is an ever-changing experience
depending on how I feel that day,
where I find myself
who I’m with
or how good the coffee is.
it’s a simple choice to decide to place
everything you have into a cloth contraption
and strap it to your back.
but this choice is an electric catalyst and
it changes the world around you and as
the world around you changes
your insides begin
shifting gears, shedding fears, pruning away
your dead leaves to allow
your vibrant Green to blossom,
a shade of green unlike anything else
you've ever seen.
this eternal spring garden within you will grow
and with such tenacity
you'll touch the sun you yearn for.
