Grass, plants and blue sky

I am the only thing

I get

to come back to

each time after leaving

I move

through long days

and years of change.

How to remind her of the value

of this

piece of real estate

Always I want

wherever she is

to lay her down

flattened grass

a sigh

and claim her happily

my home.

Emptied pockets

my feet stretch out

arms around the sky.
