A Cabin in the Woods

A Cabin In the Woods

Beloved Ones are like

a cabin in the woods

 

A safe place to stop

along the journey home

 

Warm fire of family

of being oneself

 

No need to cloak

my vulnerability

 

Or hide my face

in a mask

 

Feast and refresh

take the nourishment

 

Rest for the next leg of the road

be it stoney or steep

 

Another cabin will appear

a light in the window

 

Will beckon me

when needed most

The Handkerchief

I asked for a tissue

He gave me a handkerchief

I asked for a crumb

He invited me to a feast

I hid my face in shame

Not daring to look at His

Fearing anger

When all the while

His eyes danced

With delight

His arms outstretched

Waiting for me

To come home

Lake Roesiger

Reflection in the lake

Makes me ache

For the beauty of the other world

I know is there

 

There are reflections of that world

Everywhere

But

The noise of the city

Can drown it out

The hyper-speed

Of our wired heart beats

Can skip us right past the beauty

Laid out for us

Like a table set for a banquet to begin

All that is needed

Are for the guests to arrive

And begin the feast
