Carry It

.

Like a snail

I carry it with me

wherever I go

.

this home is a place

inside of me

not a table and chairs

not a carpet or teapot

or a settee

.

it is the peace

at the heart

of me

.

it is the laughter

that illuminates

each room

.

it is the love

of a lifetime

written on my bones
